During the summer, the Salabs have saved water - quite a lot of water. A total of 2,500 filled baths with municipal water every day compared to last year. But that's not enough, record lows may soon become reality.



Despite the ban on irrigation throughout the summer, the groundwater level in Sala continues to decline. The municipality therefore goes out and reminds that the irrigation ban remains and you are also urging residents in Sala and around the municipality to think extra deeply about how to use their water.

Must hold on

"It is very fun to make an effort, Salaborna has really invited and respected the irrigation ban, but now we have to keep at this anyway until the growing season is over and the rain that can replenish the reservoir," says Åsa Kling unit manager at the municipal building office Sala municipality.

The rain is sucked up by the greenery

It has been a summer with relatively much rain, but what has been taken up by nature or evaporated so despite rain, the levels of groundwater in all the magazines in Sala municipality have continued to decline. Therefore, the irrigation ban for everyone with municipal water remains.

That means the ban

Among other things, it is not allowed to wash the car more than in car care facilities, not to water the lawn or anything else in the garden with water hose. However, it is possible to water flowers and vegetables with a watering can. Nor has it been allowed to fill its pool with municipal water.

2,500 baths - every day

According to the municipality, the salabs used 13 percent less water this summer compared to last year. This corresponds to 2,500 filled baths every day. However, as I said, groundwater levels continue to decline and the situation may become critical during the fall as record lows are likely to emerge.
