Drought Restrictions Barely Eased Despite Recent Rains

Despite the recent rainfall, drought restrictions have been minimally relaxed. The most significant relaxation is the increase in water consumption to 200 liters per inhabitant per day on the Malaga coast, up from the previous limit of 160 liters.

Meeting of the Drought Management Commission

There were few updates in this Tuesday’s meeting of the Drought Management Commission in the Andalusian Mediterranean Basins. The Commission assessed the contributions that the recent rains and runoff have left in the province’s reservoirs, with 30 hm³ of new water raising the capacity of dammed water to 30.01%.

Reservoir Status and Water Consumption

The reservoir in the best situation is the Concepción, which serves Marbella, currently at 68% with 39.16 cubic hectometers. “Although the rains have helped improve the situation, we cannot think that the drought is over, so we must continue to maintain water-saving measures,” said Ramiro Angulo, Secretary General of Water.

Water Consumption Increase in Malaga

It has been agreed by majority to increase water consumption to a maximum of 200 liters per inhabitant per day in the 25 municipalities covered by the urban use supply of the Malaga systems, including Marbella. This is not about checking how much is spent in homes, but about measuring the volume at the entrance of the municipal head tanks or collective network intakes.

Continued Prohibitions and Future Revisions

No other measures affecting the municipality have been introduced, so the same prohibitions on filling pools that were decided before Easter Week are maintained. Therefore, only public pools, sports and social clubs, therapeutic pools, and hotel and aparthotel pools are allowed to be filled. The prohibition of private pools, both individual and community, continues. The Commission explained that these measures will be reviewed again in June, as set out in the Drought Plans themselves.
