Rain brings boost to local reservoirs

RECENT rains ended a severe drought in the Valencia region and brought much needed water to the reservoirs.

Almost one hectometre was added to the Beniarres reservoir which distributes water to areas in the west of Alicante province. It is now at 16 per cent of its 27-hectometre capacity, an improvement on an “historically low” 13 per cent, although the authorities say the situation is “still worrying.”

The Guadalest reservoir which supplies water to the Marina Baja, has also improved, with reserves increasing from 19 per cent capacity to 30 per cent, thanks to last month’s rain and a four hectometre addition.
