The amount of water in Majorca's two main reservoirs has reached “historic levels,” and the water level is rising so fast, the reservoirs are near to overflowing. The chairman of the municipal water board, EMAYA, Maria Crespo, yesterday called a special press conference to announce the latest developments. Crespo said that the two reservoirs are now holding a total of 7'500'000 cubic metres of water, the equivalent to 72 per cent of their maximum capacity. In just the past six days, the water level has risen from 800'000 cubic metres to over seven million “a phenomenon which has never been witnessed in the history of the water board.” Ironically, Crespo said that the level of water consumption has in fact dropped from 122'000 cubic metres per day to 105'000 over the past few days, while there has been more than enough water to meet the demands of EMAYA's clients in the municipality of Palma.
