Town Runs Out Of Water In Andalucia

Water supplies in an Andalucian town have run out for the first time in decades.  The three wells in Comares which supply 1400 residents are completely.  Tankers are now supplying water to the town.  The Mayor Manuel Robles explained “We are having to hire three tankers, which bring us 200,000 litres of water daily to recharge the holding tanks, from an intake in Benamargosa.”

Praying For Rain

The Mayor says he cannot remember another occassion when all three wells dried up.  “The situation is very worrying. It has rained very little and the three wells that we have dried up at the end of August. This had never happened before that I can remember. I pray that it starts to rain soon, because if we have a dry autumn I do not know what will happen in the coming months to ensure the supply to the population.”
