Local reservoirs face dry summer at 71.85% capacity

Charco Redondo this weekend
Water is 23 points below last year's figures
CAMPO DE GIBRALTAR (Agencies) There is certainly less water in the Campo reservoirs than last year, but experts say the situation is far from being a concern. Together, the three reservoirs that supply us (Charco Redondo in Los Barrios, Guadarranque in Castellar and Almodóvar in Tarifa) average 71.85% of capacity. This is 23 points below last year's figures but that was a particularly rainy winter. The experts say that there will be no need to be careful with our water usage this time around - as this is something that should be done at all times, even though droughts are cyclical.
