La Vinuela Reservoir could be declared a “dead reservoir” as water levels have fallen to just 10.7% of capacity.  The reservoir supplies water to 14 towns and 180,000 people in the Axarquia area.  A “dead reservoir” classification is usually issued when water levels falls below 11% and the remaining water can’t be separated from mud.

The regional governent of Andalucia recently established an emergency cabinet to monitor the water shortage situation.  Other reservoirs in the region are also running low, including the Embalse Conde De Guadalhorce which supplies Malaga and is at 33% of capacity.  La Conception which supplies most of the Costa Del Sol is in a better situation, with water levels at 65.6%.
