The water from Podol will be supplied to the Flora, Karlov, Zelen lika, Laurov and Bruska reservoirs as required by the central dispeing of the waterworks. Depending on the technological needs, the water will be mixed with water from other cracks, ie from Kranho and from the elivka.
In the first phase, the output will be in the volume of 400 liters and 500 liters per second, and can reach up to 800 liters per second, described the legal performance by Pavel Vlek, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Prask vodohospodsk společnosti (PVS).

It underwent major changes during the reconstruction of water treatment technology. Among other things, it is a granular activated carbon.

During the renovation of the waterworks, which took place from 2019 to the present, technicians reconstructed the fittings, sources and distribution of the control air, replaced the blowers and installed three new pumps. Renew was so veln, laboratories and put the premises, described the changes Pavel Vlek.
Podolsk vodrna will represent the legal waters in the eliv and in Kranm in the event of a shutdown due to their modernization or in the event of faults in the distribution network.
For the sake of curiosity, there is only 72 hours of elivka’s outage, then the water in the reservoirs runs out of water. It is therefore extremely important for us that we will now be able to deal with complex repairs on beers, explained Pavel Vlek. PVS is now preparing, for example, to repair the water supply system from Kranho, one of which is more than a hundred years old.

Last year, a comprehensive preparation of projects II started in the ordinary. stages of reconstruction. This year, the plant is operating at half capacity and the test room itself will run until 2023. The current costs have reached 200 million crowns.
While the investments so far in the first stage served primarily for Prague, the second. The stage will be the delivery of drinking water supplies from Prague to the Central Bohemian Region, explained Pavel Vlek.
