Too much rain for the reservoirs

In the past three months, 500 litre per square metre of rain has fallen in Andalucia, the same amount normally recorded in a complete year, and many of the reservoirs are up to, or even over, capacity.

Reservoirs in the Guadalquivir basin are up to 90% of capacity and 61 are already being drained as a precautionary measure. Most of the wetlands in Jaén have also reached the 90% threshold and are also being drained.
