Area reservoirs have enough water for the next two years

Guadarranque reservoir
CAMPO DE GIBRALTAR (Agencies) A recent report by the Mancomunidad de Municipios says that there is enough water in the local reservoirs to last at least a couple of year. This stems from the balance made at the end of the 2010-2011 hydrologic year. Both reservoirs, Guadarranque and Charco Redondo were well fed by plenty of rain over that period, which, although showing less rainfall than the previous year, was nevertheless above the average. Guadarranque is at 80% of capacity and Charco Redondo at 72%, and water had to be released at the end of last winter. This winter, however, is expected to be drier than usual, so the reservoirs are nevertheless being carefully watched.
