Water running out in Záhorie

BVS called on its customers in Záhorie to save water, using it only for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene and not for watering their gardens and filling swimming pools. The alert concerns 23 towns and villages in the Trnava, Malacky, Skalica and Senica districts.

“The current status of the ground water in these regions is sufficient for the residents’ consumption, but if the drought and increased water usage continues, BVS will need to regulate the supply,” stated the company, as quoted by TASR.

BVS has asked the respective municipalities to introduce an immediate ban on the use of water from public water pipes for watering lawns, filling pools and washing cars.

The towns and villages affected by the limitations are: Senica, Borský Mikuláš, Borský Svätý Jur, Brodské, Čáry, Hradište pod Vrátnom, Jablonica, Kuklov, Kúty, Lakšárska Nová Ves, Moravský Svätý Ján, Osuské, Sekule, Smolinské, Šaštín Stráže, Gbely, Letničie, Petrova Ves, Radimov, Unín, Studienka, Veľké Leváre and Buková.
