Bulgaria: Eighth Cistern Removed From Bulgaria's Hitrino BGNES

The eighth cistern which was left on Saturday night has been taken out of the village of Hitrino.

Three more cisterns have to be removed on Sunday. This will leave only one cistern which was leaking gas until Saturday.

Prime Minister Borisov expressed hope that residents of the village will be able to return to their homes by Tuesday.

Transport Minister Ivaylo Moskovski announced that the cistern is still being processed. It is expected that water, sewage and electricity experts will enter Hitrino on Sunday in order to inspect the facilities.

“There will be a meeting on Monday in which all services will monitor the water, soil, air. They will give people the results from these checks in order for them to be calm and convinced that the results do not exceed the permitted levels,” explained Moskovski.

It seems Hitrino is the new Fukushima.

The technology exists, but must reach out and not live in a shell.

Do any of the English speaking people on here call gas cylinders or gas tanks, cisterns?
I was taught that cisterns were underground water storage tanks or the little tank that stores the water to flush the toilet with.
