Reservoir is almost completely full


THANKS to heavier than usual rainfall during the winter, La Concepcion reservoir in Istan is almost completely full.

In fact there has been so much rainfall that water has had to be released into the sea on three separate occasions.

As there is still some water shortage in the north of Malaga Province, a decision may be made for the future as to whether to increase the size of the reservoir or to pump excess water to Malaga rather than waste it.

The one thing that seems fairly certain is that Marbella and the surrounding towns should not have any fears about water shortages during this coming summer.
