Small "flood" in Prague district Vysocany

People who went to work yesterday morning along Sokolovska Street in Prague could´t believe their eyes. The street and the near park were flooded with water to the height of several tens of centimetres. It was caused by a crack of a water pipeline.

The pipeline cracked at 7 am. The area had to be closed for traffic, the trams were diverted for three hours. The supply of drinking water wasn´t affected, because it was an industrial water pipeline, providing service water from the river Vltava. Around 3 000 solid meters of water flew out.

The cracked pipeline was closed and the traffic is fully restored now.
