Old mine in Spišská Nová Ves once again causes flooding

Residents in the town of Spišská Nová Ves in the Košice region were awakened in the early hours of January 31 to the sound of water gushing to the surface from an old mine located nearby, the TASR newswire reported. The flood water this time is thought to have caused less damage than a similar incident last December when flood waters made it into back gardens and cellars of several dozen houses. This is the fourth such incident since last summer, said Jan Volny, mayor of Spišská Nová Ves, and its citizens fear more flooding with the advent of spring rains. Professionals are looking for ways to resolve the problem in this former mining area, where the situation is aggravated by obstacles blocking the flow of underground water. TASR
