Fears over water levels

LAKE VIÑUELA: Currently only at 35 per cent capacity.

EXPERTS have again expressed fears over the continuing lack of rain for water courses serving the Malaga Region. If the rains continue to hold off, it is argued, the civic authorities may have to impose water usage restrictions.

This would entail calling into action the special drought plan for the Andalucian Mediterranean Basin. They remain concerned not only about the lack of rainfall but the trend in water consumption.

The three main reservoirs serving the Guadalhorce can guarantee continued water supplies for another two years, it is claimed. The situation is regarded as most serious for Lake Viñuela, the largest in the province, which is said to be at just 35 per cent of its capacity.
