The elevated drinking water tank in Ried im Oberinntal was contaminated during construction work. The population is asked to boil water for three minutes. We are currently waiting for the bacteriological report.
The pollution only affects parts of the municipality of Ried. The districts of St. Christina, Freitzberg and Hohlenegg are not affected. The population is called upon to only consume tap water if it has been boiled for three minutes beforehand. This still applies until Monday, October 4th.
Wait for bacteriological examination
Construction work in the municipality of Fendels has led to the contamination of the elevated tank. The damage to the main supply line has already been repaired. Before the drinking water is released again, however, the result of the bacteriological examination must be awaited, which will be available on Monday at the earliest.
