Reservoir levels continue to rise after fears over water shortages

After concerns were raised earlier this year about water levels, current figures show that water storage across the country is on average at 72.4% of capacity.

In total 40591 cubic hectometres of water are contained within the nations reservoirs. However some regions have low supplies. Storage facilities in Segura and Júcar reservoirs are currently well below 40% of total capacity.

The heavy rains in regions across the country at the weekend also increased the volumes in reserve by 0.5% by 304 cubic hectometres.
