EUFOR’s British reserve company (from 1 SCOTS) has been repairing water network pipes in Lapore together with Armed Forces BiH. Once EOD and medical teams had assessed the area as being safe to work in, the teams began to salvage water pipes that had been flushed down the Gnjica River during the flooding.
The commander of the 1 SCOTS platoon, Lt Guy Ballantyne, and the AF BiH platoon commander, Lt Benudin Barjaktarevic, worked together to ensure that the pipes will be able to be put to use again in the local water distribution network.
