Strained waterworks in Skåne : The waterworks' capacity in Skåne, Sweden, including the Ringsjöverket plant, may reach its limit during peak usage times, prompting warnings to save water. The facility supplies water to several municipalities, but increased water usage in the summer can strain the system. While there is no immediate risk of water shortage due to the large lake that supplies the facility, saving water is encouraged to avoid strain on the infrastructure and potential increased fees.
