The regional health authority is calling on people not to use water from private wells near the chemical factory Istrochem and to only use safe water from the public water mains instead, in advice issued by the regional office of the Public Health Authority (ÚVZ) for Bratislava.
Bratislava’s borough of Nové Mesto asked the regional office for its opinion in response to the declassification of a report about high environmental pollution on Istrochem’s premises.
“Pending the publication of the official results of a survey of the environmental burden and designing and implementing effective remediation measures, we consider water from private wells in this area to be unsuitable for drinking and personal hygiene in the long term,” reads the health authority’s opinion, published on the borough's website.
