The reason is the recent dry weather and an unnecessarily high water consumption of the people of Eksjö during the early summer.

The weather has meant that there has been limited replenishment of the municipality's surface and groundwater sources.

From 11 June, it is forbidden to use municipal drinking water for purposes other than drinking, hygiene and process water.

In addition to private individuals, the restrictions also apply to associations, public organizations and companies until a different decision is announced.
