As drought conditions blight, the Alpes-Maritimes department was placed in a “severe” fire risk Saturday. The prefecture of the Alpes-Maritimes announced restrictions on the use of water in certain areas. The new bans take the alert level to three out of four in the Cagnes, Brague, Paillon, Roya, Estéron and the Haut Var districts.

Individuals will no longer have the right to water their lawns, either by day nor night. On the other hand, watering is allowed for flowers and vegetable gardens from 8 am until 8 pm. Cars can no longer be washed unless at an approved washing station.

Filling of swimming pools becomes subject to municipal authorisation, while golf courses will have to reduce their water consumption by 60 percent. Stadiums and sports facilities will only be able to water their pitches from 8 am until 8 pm.

The washing of roads and driveways is also forbidden. The Var is not yet concerned and remains on “alert.”
