Water Reserves at Concepción Reservoir Reach 70% Capacity

The Concepción Reservoir, which supplies water to Marbella, has reached 70% of its capacity on Saturday morning. This is the highest level in ten months, specifically since June 2023. However, it still lacks five cubic hectometers to match the figures from a year ago.

Recent Rains Boost Water Levels

The relief to the water shortage in the Western Costa del Sol is evident following the recent Easter rains and the continuous runoff contributing to the Concepción Reservoir. On Saturday morning, the reservoir reached 70% capacity, a level not seen since June 2023, making it the best figure in ten months.

Significant Improvement in Water Storage

Currently, there are 40.28 cubic hectometers of water stored, almost three more than a week ago. The situation has significantly improved. Looking back, in January, the water level had dropped to 13.03 cubic hectometers. At that time, all alarms were triggered, and restrictive measures were implemented, which are still in place despite the improvement.

From 22% to 70% Capacity in Four Months

The reservoir’s capacity has increased from 22% at the beginning of the year to the current 70%, four months later. However, the levels from last year have not yet been reached. At this time last year, there were 45.64 cubic hectometers of water stored, 83%, providing much more security to the region.

Water Consumption Limit Raised in Málaga Province

The Andalusian Board has decided to raise the water consumption limit to 200 liters per person per day in the province of Málaga, which had dropped to 160 liters during the worst period. There is still uncertainty about what will happen with private pools, as hotel pools can be filled, as decided before Easter.
