“The City of Thionville must be exemplary”. Patricia Renaux, Deputy Delegate for Ecological Transition and the Living Environment is formal: “The effort must be collective”. The new prefectural decree of 29 July places the Sillon moselle in a heightened alert situation which further tightens the water restriction measures. “To see all our flowerbeds wither, how sad. When you know what that means in terms of team investment…”. From now on, all the beds of annual flowers located at the city entrances, on the Merlin roundabouts, Napoleon Park, Carrefour, Leclerc, Cormontaigne, in front of the Concorde, etc., will be left to their sad fate. Same thing for lawns where automatic watering has been suspended.
