WATER CRISIS UPDATE


It has been announced that from this coming Wednesday 21st February, there will be new water restrictions in place at night. The municipalities of the Western Costa del Sol will suffer a drop in pressure every night, with the exception of Saturdays.



These restrictions will take place between 00:00 hours and 06:00 hours in order to deal with the severe drought that we are experiencing in the province.  During these hours, there may be homes and commercial premises that do not have a water supply, mainly buildings that do not have a water tank, but also those located in higher areas and further away from the main network in each municipality. The supply will be gradually restored from 06:00 hours onwards.


These new measures come after the decision taken by the Andalusian Drought Committee, which restricts water consumption to 160 litres per inhabitant per day for the whole province of Malaga, when up until now the limit was 200 litres per inhabitant per day.


The regulations issued by the Regional Government, will enable those users who consume water excessively, irresponsibly and unscrupulously, to be penalised.


Acosol is calling for maximum public cooperation to save water consumption in every home and to raise awareness of the importance of saving our "most precious vital resource". The organisation reminds us that we must preserve it for as long as possible and asks for "for responsible consumption".
