Water Levels at Concepción Reservoir Match Last Year’s, Yet Restrictions Remain

The Concepción Reservoir, which supplies water to Marbella, currently holds the same amount of water as it did a year ago, 43 cubic hectometres. Despite this, the Andalusian Government continues to enforce water restrictions, which were last relaxed a month ago but are still in effect. In 2023, there were no such measures in place at this time of the year, and there was no talk of drought.

Relief from Rainfall Despite Concerning Water Reserve Levels

Although water reserves for the Western Costa del Sol had dropped to worryingly low levels, the rainfall during Holy Week at the end of March has provided significant relief. Throughout April, runoff water has been flowing into the Concepción Reservoir, which now holds the same amount of water as it did a year ago.

Reservoir at 75% Capacity, Best in Málaga Province

According to information from the Hidrosur Network, there are 43 cubic hectometres of water, the same amount as on May 7, 2023. This means that the reservoir is almost 75% full, making it the best-stocked in the entire province of Málaga. Despite these circumstances, water restrictions imposed by the Andalusian Government remain in effect.

Water Consumption and Pool Filling Restrictions Relaxed

These measures were relaxed on April 9, when water consumption on the Málaga coast was increased from 160 to 200 litres per inhabitant per day. Before Holy Week, another amendment was made to allow the filling of public and tourist (hotels and aparthotels) swimming pools, but not private ones, both communal and individual.

Water Level Same as Last Year, But Restrictions Persist

As of today, nothing has changed despite the water level being the same as last year, when there were no restrictions in place.
