A leak in Echternach's water reserves causes concerns regarding water supply.

The municipality of Echternach has requested that citizens reduce the usage of tap water after the threat to local supply was reported on Friday morning.

For the area covered by Vallée de l'Ernz, the local municipality has advised that all residents must reduce their tap water usage as a matter of urgency, especially residents in the villages of Ermsdorf and Eppeldorf.

A number of activities requiring an excess of water are banned until further notice, including filling swimming pools, washing cars, using a high pressure washer, and so on. The extremely high temperatures of the last few days have also had an effect on natural water reserves.
