Historical water mains

About 10 water withdrawal places were built under Uhlířský Hill, of which 4 have been preserved until the present. Water was led down by a wooden water line to an adit, which formed part of the water mains system of Bruntál. Nearby there are several inspection pits and three wells. The collected water was pumped to the water tank under Uhlířský Hill and distributed round the town through the water mains.
