The rains of the last days favor an increase of the water reserve



The heavy rainfall in the last few days throughout the country has led, 4 months later, an increase in the water reserve, which places the reservoirs at 52.3 percent of capacity, 0.6 percent more than to the levels of last week.

The reservoirs accumulate 29,344 cubic hectometres (hm³), much higher than last year's average of 21,169 hm³, according to the Ministry for the Ecological Transition, which points out that rainfall has "significantly" affected the entire peninsula and the maximum has been collected in Tortosa with 146.4 liters per square meter.

The Segura basin continues to be the one with the least water accumulation with just 234 hm³, a figure somewhat better than the amount accumulated last year, 155 hm³, but below the average of the last 10 years, 442 hm³.

On the contrary, the basins with the most volume are those of Guadiana with 5,462 hm³ and that of the Tagus with 5,142 hm³.

The following table shows, by river basins, the total capacity in cubic hectometres, the current and the percentage of water stored:
