Due to the lack of water in Oslo, the Municipality is now closing a number of fountains in the city.

Such a dry March and April have been registered in southeastern Norway. With only one source of drinking water in Oslo – Maridalsvannet – the Municipality has decided to scale down the spring cleaning, drop daily bus washing, and is now turning off fountains, the newspaper Aftenposten writes.

The decision applies to the city’s fountains and pools that receive a supply of drinking water. 

A number of fountains in Frognerparken and those close to Kirkeristen will be closed, along with the fountains in Spikersuppa, Stortorvet, Nationaltheatret, and Youngstorget.
