Residents of Mancor de la Vall have had to put up with water restrictions since the beginning of the week, and more may be on the way.The village's well can no longer cope with demand which is in the region of 500 cubic metres a day. The village has now been divided into four sections, each of which has water for only 12 hours a day. Mayor Bernardí Coll had warned residents two months ago that this would happen if it did not rain. Yesterday he said that what was more serious was the fact that there is no solution for the water shortage over the next few months and the situation could get worse as summer advances. The well which supplies Mancor is in the neighbouring municipality of Selva and provides between 250 and 300 cubic metres of water a day. When the well was drilled in 1993 it was believed it would solve the village's water problems for ever. The government is studying the possibility of connecting the pipes to the system of Selva, but the Mayor said it is almost impossible for the work to be done this summer.
