The weekend's rains have helped to increase the level of water in Majorca's two main reservoirs. Both Cuber and Gorg Blau reservoirs are now 87.5 per cent full, holding over ten million cubic metres of water. The figures released yesterday by the municipal water board Emaya, paint a very different picture to this time last year. In the middle of December last year, the level of water in the two reservoirs was just 30.76 per cent, just over three million cubic metres of water. Emaya sources said that the situation in the reservoirs is very encouraging and that for the moment, the desalination plants will continue operating as normal in order to keep the pressure off the reservoirs so that Majorca will be in a position to deal with any drought problems next year. In short, Emaya hopes that the drought which has crippled the island for the past ten years is over. However, the message is for consumers to continue with their water saving schemes and reduce consumption to a minimum.
