My topic for this newsletter is drought. I wonder what is the first thing that comes into your mind when you think of drought?

This makes me very worried… I also ask myself what causes drought and what exactly happens when there is drought?

Our municipalities are doing what they can to prevent a national water crisis. ‘Water throttling’ refers to a reduction in pipe pressure so that less water flows through our taps. This means that less water is used every time a tap is opened. Water restrictions prevent consumers from using water wastefully by restricting certain water-use activities that are non-essential.
