Approximately 270 kilometers of watercourses are under flood control since this morning in Vojvodina, of which 6 kilometers of the Sava River near Klenk and Hrtkovci settlements and Stojšića Bogaz site are under emergency flood control.
Three seepages have been repaired on the Sava River near Klenk at sections where atmospheric sewage discharges from the settlement into the river. Three pumps are currently pumping water from the flood defended area of the settlement into the Sava while sandbags are placed around the water “boilings” in the toe of the embankment. That is a normal occurrence during river stages such as these, however, the situation on flood embankments must be monitored 24/7.
