Due to the prolonged drought and the warm and sunny weather, we advise all citizens to reserve the use of drinking water, as far as possible, to essential uses such as food preparation and hygiene.
Drinking water shortage (level « red »)
This dataset contains the extent of the floodplain of the 1983 flood event of the rive Mosel. The dataset is structured according to the INSPIRE Annex III Theme - Natural Risk Zones.
Watercourses with a potential significant flood risk according to article 4 of the floods directive 2007/60/EC. Article 4 of the Floods Directive requires Member States to undertake a Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment (PFRA) for each river basin district, unit of management or the portion of an international river basin district or unit of management lying within their territory. The identification of Areas of Potential Significant Flood Risk (APSFR, Article 5) will be based on available or readily derivable information, including the requirements specified in Article 4 (PFRA) in the Directive. In the 1st implementation cycle Member States may apply Article 13.1 (transitional arrangements) and either report on a PFRA carried out before 22 December 2010 (Article 13.1(a)) or proceed directly to mapping and establishment of flood risk management plans (Article 13.1(b)). If Article 13.1(a) is applied, the result will include the identification of APSFR (Article 5), if Article 13.1(b) is applied, APSFR will not be identified; instead maps at the appropriate scale according to Article 6 (see Flood Hazard Maps and Flood Risk Maps) will be prepared. Delivery process is managed by EEA.
