Water problems in the Benamargosa valley

Five municipalities in the Benamargosa valley have not been receiving water from Lake Viñuela since Saturday November 17th due to damage caused to pipes by the last storms. Almáchar, El Borge, Benamargosa, Cútar and Comares are the affected municipalities with a total population of around 7,000 residents.

Cútar is the most serious case as it is the only one of the municipalities without its own water supply. Water is being brought in daily but instead of it being distributed on the streets, it is being put directly into the local tanks so residents can still obtain their water via the tap.

The large flow of water has apparently prevented repairs from being carried out, according to Axaragua, but the situation could be rectified by the end of this weekend.
