Waakirchen - The pump of the Waakirchner deep well failed on Thursday morning.
According to the municipality, it drew up an emergency plan and discussed it with the local fire brigades.
They fetched water from the neighboring communities and first supplied the farmers with it in order to limit the consumption of the remaining water in the elevated tank.
Meanwhile, the citizens of Waakirchner saved water by "acting on their own responsibility", praised the community.
The municipality solved the problem by the afternoon: the building yard removed the old pump, installed a new one and put it into operation.
It was operational around 4 p.m. and pumped water back into the elevated tank.
In a press release on behalf of the municipality, Mayor Norbert Kerkel thanks the Waakirchen, Schaftlach and Piesenkam fire brigades as well as the surrounding municipalities of Gmund, Reichersbeuern, Sachsenkam and Wall for their support and good cooperation.
He also thanks the Waakrichner Bauhof for the "great and quick work" and all the citizens who have saved water.
