“RWC Prishtina” has announced that although the situation with the water level is good, rational consumption of drinking water in this period is necessary.
Further in their announcement it is said that we are already entering the summer season and the demand for drinking water in the service area has started to increase even though, the drinking water supply is stable and 24 h uninterrupted.
Full press release:
Dear citizens / customers of the Regional Water Company ,, Prishtina ,, sh.a., we inform you that the water level in the accumulating lakes Batllava and Badoci is satisfactory. Lake Batllava (0.43 m) below the maximum level of overflow, while Lake Badoc (2.55 m) below the level of overflow.
We also have concrete plans for drought management and depending on the levels, the steps to be taken to manage situations in reservoirs and underground resources in the years of drought that come as a result of climate change on earth are foreseen.
Countries, especially those in the developing world and other regions that are already suffering from water scarcity, are likely to bear the brunt of the overwhelming drought in the decade we are entering. So, we emphasize once again that, it is very important that we all together manage the use of drinking water and report timely water leaks and abuses.
We are entering the summer season and immediately began to increase demand for drinking water in the service area although, the supply of drinking water is stable and 24 h without interruption.
Rational consumption of drinking water in this period is necessary.
Water today should not be used uncontrollably, in which case we can reduce drinking water reserves!
The role of water is essential for living beings and the planet, we need it for drinks, homes and gardens, but it is important to understand the meaning of indirect water use for both production, supply and development.
What can each of us do to stop water misuse: –
Do not allow water to flow in vain from your faucet,
Do not use drinking water to wash cars,
Do not use drinking water for numerous constructions in the city,
Do not clean sidewalks with drinking water,
Do not forget to close your taps after brushing your teeth and face,
Do not water flowers, gardens and fields,
Pay regularly for the water you consume,
Do not allow unauthorized interference in the water supply network,
We are all water users, so we are also responsible for using it fairly.
