IN just one year, Malaga’s reservoirs have lost some 100 million cubic metres of water.
For the first time in two years, water levels in the province’s seven reservoirs have almost fallen below the 500 million cubic metres level due to the lack of rain over the past Autumn and Winter.
Just a year ago, there were more than 600 million cubic metres after two exceptionally rainy winters, whereas this year there have only been 30 litres per square metre.
The worst affected reservoir is Guadalteba, which one year ago had 152.5 million cubic metres and currently only has 129 million cubic litres.
Levels in the Conde del Guadalhorce reservoir have also fallen by 22 million cubic hectometres.
