THE BRATISLAVA Water Utility Company (BVS) installed exchangeable bio filters in five channel shafts in Bratislava’s Old Town in late June. Around 40 more new filters will be installed over time, BVS spokesman Zenon Mikle informed the SITA newswire.

The filters will ease the stench that emanates from channel shafts during the summer, something which has been drawing complaints from residents and tourists. The smell is caused by waste from restaurants and canteens blocking the shafts' pipes.

The first new filter was installed in October 2007 at the channel shaft in the Main Square.
