Newsworthy Title: Spanish Water Reserves at 65.7% Capacity

State of Reservoirs

Currently, the Spanish water reserve is at 65.7% of its total capacity, with reservoirs currently storing 36,829 cubic hectometers (hm³) of water. This marks a decrease of 305 hm³ in the last week, which is 0.5% of the total current capacity of the reservoirs.

The breakdown of the water reserve by regions is as follows:

– Eastern Cantabrian is at 87.7%
– Western Cantabrian is at 94.9%

The detailed situation of the basins, in cubic hectometers, can be found in the attached table.

This information is also available in a more visual format on the new MITECO web application. Additionally, the file is updated weekly, containing a table with data on peninsular reservoirs with a capacity greater than 5 hm³ since 1988.
