Alpes Maritimes drought limit

The prefecture has taken a series of measures to deal with water shortages.

Situation: 40-60% less water than usual in the department. As a result, on March 9, the Alpes Maritimes province caused alertness throughout the sector with its first instance. The latest data then revealed that the volume of certain rivers in the Var, Roya, Brague, and Paillon catchment areas was below the alert threshold.

As a result, since March 25, 98 municipalities, including Nice, Antibes, Bio, Ez, Menthone and Beaulieu, have been paying attention to the drought. The Principality’s neighboring municipalities, Beausoleil, La Turbie, Cap-d’Ail and Roquebrune, are also involved. Other commune in the department are still vigilant.
