Help us save water

Gotland has not received enough rain and snow the past few years. The groundwater levels on the island are at record lows right now, and catchment in our wetlands is poor. Water is our most important provision; consequently, we must now conserve to ensure there is enough for everyone.

A watering ban has been in place since April 15th 2017, which is much earlier than usual. Now everyone is being encouraged to conserve water during the summer.

8 simple hints for conservation

Water supply is everyone’s responsibility. Even if you have your own water/well, you should conserve. Following are some ideas of what you can do:

  1. Shower a maximum of 4 minutes and turn off the water while shampooing/scrubbing.
  2. Take a shower instead of a bath. (Unless you bathe in the sea, of course :)
  3. Make sure your dishwasher and washing machine are full before running them, and use a short cycle.
  4. Do not wash dishes under running water; use a sink plug or washing bowl.
  5. Fill a pitcher with water and refrigerate instead of letting the water run from the tap until it gets cold.
  6. Close the tap when you brush your teeth.
  7. Is your toilet an older model? Put a brick or two inside the water tank to cut down on the amount of water used when flushing.
  8. Water your garden with rain water.
