In France, the drought is already present while the summer season is just beginning. A situation conducive to fires.

Faced with a strong episode of drought, several villages organized themselves to limit the consummation of water. So by place, therunning water was cut off to save money. In Fayence (var) the situation is serious since a tank must be filled to supply water to a surrounding village.It’s been 50 years, I’ve never known a situation like that, it’s especially that there was no snow, no rain,” says a municipal officer. Rain is also one of the solutions expected by the authorities.

The situation is such that limits are set and residents must not consume more than 150 liters per day and per person.It’s little habits that we had lost, yes, you have to be careful (…) but it’s not something restrictive“, explains a resident. In Haute-Loire, agricultural workers go directly to the lake since one of the sources is no longer accessible.
