Emergency water bag

notwasser_zuerich

Water breakdown in our neighbourhood in Zürich Kreis 3 on Thursday evening at 20hrs. Half an hour later eight of these emergency water bags in an even bigger plastic bag were delivered to each flat by the city water department. Definitely overcared citizens and no chance to enjoy the moment when neigbours started talking to each other. Prost!
