Belgium: Government wants to use drones during drought | Water News EuropeWest-Flanders governor Carl Decaluwé in Belgium wants to introduce drones in times of water scarcity. The drones should prevent illegal abstraction of water. During the extreme drought in 2018 many farmers neglected the ban on irrigation. “During the summer only ten farmers were fined, while the infringement took place on a larger scale”, said Decaluwé in an interview with Focus/WTV.
