Andalusian Board Eases Drought Measures for Public Pools

The Andalusian Board has relaxed drought measures this Thursday, allowing the filling of public swimming pools, those of sports and social clubs, therapeutic pools, and those in tourist accommodations. However, the ban remains in place for private pools, both individual and those in residential blocks.

Meeting of the Drought Management Commission

The Commission for the Management of Drought in the hydrographic demarcation of the Andalusian Mediterranean Basins met this afternoon to analyze the measures being applied against the drought. They agreed on new flexibilities and possibilities to provide solutions to productive sectors so that they can carry out their activities. The meeting unanimously agreed to allow the filling of municipal public pools, sports or social clubs, those used for therapeutic purposes in health centers, and those in tourist accommodations. Therefore, the ban remains for private pools, both individual and community ones in residential blocks.

Future Evaluation of Hydrological Situation

This body has indicated that it will meet again in 15 days to evaluate the hydrological situation considering the contributions that continue to arrive at the reservoirs. The situation has slightly improved with the recent rains, waiting for the contribution to be completed with the runoffs. In two weeks, the adoption of a possible reduction of the savings measures that have been implemented will be studied.
