The current drought in Andalucia is having a devastating effect on the region.  Almost one quarter of Andalucia’s production has been hit by water shortages, which are having a major effect on farming and tourism.  Regional President Juanma Moreno has now announced a four billion euro plan to tackle the problem over the next five years.

Recycling Sewage Water

The money will be spent in several key areas which include adapting sewage treatment plants so that water can be recycled for agriculture, building and improving desalination facilities, and recovering underground water sources.
