Urgent Drought Action Starting

1 min read

Under the threat of drought across the entire country, the Ministry of the Environment has authorised the first emergency transfers of water between reservoirs, with 35 cubic hectometres of water being authorised to be taken from the Pedrera reservoir in Torremendo, in order to alleviate the severe threat to the agriculture sector.

This is in addition to the 15 cubic hectometres already transferred from the Pedrera to the central zone. As of Thursday of this week, before the 35 cubic hectometre transfer, the Pedrera reservoir was holding 155 cubic hectometres of its 246 capacity.

Across the Segura basin, the reservoirs are collectively holding 58% of their capacity. This time last year, the reservoirs were at 74% capacity.
