Low water level stops transportation on Elbe

During this dry year, it was already noticed, that the water levels have lowered, but perhaps the lowest water level was measured in Ústí nad Labem, where it completely stopped local water transportation.

The man in charge of the transportation, Mr. Zídek is concerned, because they can’t load the ships or even sail them since they would get damaged. Sadly there isn’t expected any water rise anytime soon. Due to this problem president Zeman once had again reminded his plans of constructing a canal, which would connect Elbe, Oder and Danube.
