MALAGA Provincial Council president Elias Bendodo has urged the regional and national authorities to work on the idea of connecting basins in the Costa del Sol and the Axarquia to help meet the latter’s agricultural sector’s need for more water.

If more water was made available to the sector, Bendodo stressed, it would allow it to grow, generating extra jobs and income.

While the Sierra de Grazalema is one of the areas in Spain that registers the most rainfall in the country, Bendodo explained, the area has little capacity to store water whereas in the Axarquia it rains less but there is more storage space available meaning connecting the two somehow would be the perfect solution.
