A large portion of Lelystad residents and businesses were either without water or had brown water flowing at low pressure from their taps on Tuesday morning, water utility Vitens confirmed. Parts of the city’s north side along the Zuigerplasdreef were also flooded amid the related water main break.
The incident was first reported at about 5:45 a.m. and repair work had begun by 7:15 a.m., the firm said. It was not immediately clear how many households were affected. Lelystad counts over 77 thousand residents.
Vitens expects the problem to be solved by 10:45 a.m.
