There should be water in the pipeline

Even though we have had no rain in this province during the last two weeks, our water supply should be safe because of the amount that has fallen on the La Mancha plateau. The reserves in the dams of the Tajo have increased by 46 cubic hectometres in the last seven days.

That, along with the 16hm3 increase during the week before means that the levels in the marshes of Entrepeñas and Buendía are now at 320hm3.

The last shipment of water from the Tajo to the Segura was approved on the 28th December when the levels were much lower.
