Watering ban in 13 municipalities.
As of 10 July 2018, there is a watering ban in Finnøy, Rennesøy, Kvitsøy, Randaberg, Sola, Stavanger, Sandnes, Gjesdal, Time, Klepp and Hå municipality.
Exception: in Gjesdal municipality, the prohibition does not include the groundwater that supply Oltedal and Dirdal.
It is now prohibited to use a garden hose, drip hose, spreader and other irrigation equipment for watering and washing requiring larger amounts of water. Watering with the can is allowed.
Exception: farmers and others who make a living from food, animals, plants, agriculture etc., as well as car wash and washing companies.
Reasons for the ban: Low rainfall, less water in the water sources and high water consumption. The restrictions will ensure stable water supply to everyone who gets water from Langevatn, and ensure good capacity in case of fires.
The prohibition applies until further notice. The information is provided on www.ivar.no, the local authorities' websites and Facebook.
If you have questions about the watering ban, please contact your municipality.
There is no longer a watering ban in Strand and Hjelmeland municipality.
The best drinking water comes straight from the tap
IVAR supplies drinking water to all the municipal owners. Our drinking water is subject to the most stringent requirements related to the quality of hygienic water.
We treat waste water
IVAR receives and treats waste water from the ownership municipalities. Our goal is to ensure that the discharge of waste water does not harm rivers and sea areas and to ensure re-circulating of dry sludge from the treatment facilities.
We create value from what you throw away
IVAR receives and ensures further treatment of waste from the collection systems in the ownership municipalities.
Residual waste in transparent waste bags
From January 2017 the residual waste must be delivered in transparent waste bags at IVAR´s recycling stations.
Together with the residual waste that currently is delivered in black waste bags, we often find electrical waste, hazardous waste, glass and metal. To avoid this, we have chosen to introduce delivery in transparent waste bags. (Electrical and hazardous waste can be delivered FREE in our recycling stations).
Residual waste is what is left when everything that can be recycled is sorted out. Thank you for your contribution!
