bad homburg – The rainfall of the past two weeks has led to a significant drop in water consumption in Bad Homburg. Drinking water withdrawal has stabilized at a good level,” explains Mayor Dr. Oliver Jedynak (CDU). Therefore, in consultation with the municipal utility, it was decided to turn the digital traffic lights on the city and municipal utility websites and the analogue water traffic lights at the Seedammbad and in front of the train station back to green.
According to the city’s press office, the daily rate is currently hovering around 9,500 cubic meters. Compared to the average daily delivery in August, this is a drop of more than 20 percent. As a result of the rainfall, the network fee is declining, which means that less drinking water has to be pumped.
However, the situation is not entirely relaxed. Because: The rains have not yet had an effect on the groundwater, the city reports. At Stadtwerke, this effect is expected in the hydrological winter half-year from November to April.
“We are currently working with the TU Darmstadt on a water management concept,” says Mayor Jedynak. He assumes that drinking water will be one of the most important issues in the coming years. judo
