The Consellera de Agricultura, Pesca y Alimentación, Maritina Hernandez, claims that the water policies of Zapatero will end agriculture in the Valencian Community.
The Consellera has been requesting a transfer of water from the Ebro for four years.
The new Minister for Medio Ambiente, Medio Rural y Marino, Elena Espinosa has already held meetings with the President of the Catalan Autonomous Government, Jose Montilla to close an agreement which guarantees water for Barcelona. This is taken to mean that the requests for water from the Ebro for this region have yet again been ignored.
Of course there won't be a problem today because it is actually raining! At least the fields will get a bit of a soaking.
