Water for everyone

(Agencies) The trasvase, or transfer, of water from the Guadiaro river to the Majaceite on the other side of the province of Cádiz, has moved 23 cubic hectometres since it was opened on December 21. The water thus transferred is used exclusively by the population of the province, according to rules established by the Agencia Andaluza del Agua, which is the equivalent of one million inhabitants or a quarter of the annual water supply in that area. But this is not the only consequence of recent rainfall as the Charco Redondo (photo) and Guadarranque reservoirs have received up to 32 cubic hectometres since December 28.
