What do you know about the water supply in Milan?
The Milan city water supply has been under pressure since last month, when a small pipe burst in a basement apartment block, spilling a massive amount of water into the streets.
In the aftermath, the Italian government announced that the water in the city would be tested to determine if the pipe had been installed properly, and it is expected to confirm the results on Saturday.
The city has since taken measures to ensure that the city water is safe for use, but a recent study conducted by researchers at Milan University revealed that the condition of the water could still cause serious health effects.
The study also revealed that, according to the Italian National Agency for Health, “serious health problems are likely due to the contamination of water sources”.
As part of the study, scientists at the University of Milan analysed the water that had been sampled from the sewer systems of two residential buildings, as well as a nearby shopping centre.
The researchers analysed the bacteria levels in the water and compared it to those found in human urine and faeces.
The water samples were analysed by microbiologists from the National Institute for Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (INSEE), the Italian Institute of Biomedical Sciences (INSS), and the Italian Academy of Sciences.
They found that the levels of B. burgdorferi and E. coli in the samples were between one and three times higher than normal levels, suggesting that the residents may have been exposed to sewage water.
The level of contamination was found to be higher in the residential buildings than in the shopping centre, which has a population of over 10,000.
According to the scientists, the contamination could be caused by the building’s plumbing or by the installation of an over-the-counter disinfectant.
The Italian city’s mayor is now under pressure to reinstate the water system, which had been shut down because of the problem.
According a recent survey by the National Public Health Agency, in the country, 80 percent of residents are unable to drink water, and only 1 percent drink tap water.
