waterhoseA severe water shortage in the region has prompted the prefecture of the Alpes-Maritimes to ask users to limit their use. Rainfall in the department has been 35 percent less than normal since September 2015.

The whole of the department has been placed on a “vigilance” alert from Monday, August 8. The authorities have called on water users, particularly businesses, to take a range of actions to limit their use.

Non-essential use of water, such as car washing, should be avoided, while the amount of water for cleaning roadways and pavements, as well as for the watering of plants, should be reduced. The prefecture also encourages businesses and homes to plant species that are well-adapted to the local climate.
