A FAULT on the Acosol network in Fuengirola means residents could be without water supply for 72 hours.
The water company have reported technicians will be working to fix the fault which could affect the entire municipality with the exception of Benalmadena Pueblo which has its own water supply.
Emabesa has recommended locals use private water supplies or depositos in the meantime, just in case.
Emabesa has also committed to using any available water resources in a responsible and reasonable way to avoid cuts to the water network.
They explained wherever possible, if water shortages did force cuts these would always take place at night.
