Not all bad

 image The recent rains may have caused problems for some but at least they have put water back into the Segura river. The river is currently fuller than it has been for 25 years at this time of year.

This influx of water is beneficial to the environment; it cleans the salt and other pollutants from the land and thus improves crop yields, it is beneficial to fish stocks and adds to the reserves of water in the area.

The dams of the Segura are now at 68% capacity which means there is enough water for two years. Agriculturalists will be pleased and we will benefit from good produce at a competitive price.
