Exclamation Please don't waste water.

Mallorca's water reserve is now down to 30% . So can i ask you all to be very cautious with your water usage while you are here, thanks .

How do you rate the chances of rationing.

It is already happening in parts of the island where local authorities are turning off the water for parts of the day from what I have read.

The rainfall deficit in Majorca since the start of this year has been 49%. Miquel └ngel Gili of Aemet in the Balearics says that this deficit was 37% over the last quarter and that in August the average rainfall was 17.7 litres per square metre, 2.8 litres fewer than the historical norm.

There have now been ten consecutive months with lower than average rainfall in Majorca. This situation will, in all likelihood, mean that the environment ministry has to declare a state of drought pre-alert for the whole island, with the possible exception of the water demand unit in the Pla (plain) region.


... The highest temperature in August was 39.9 Celsius in Pollensa on the ninth.


Pre-alert for drought would mean specific campaigns for water-saving. These could entail restrictions on use, increases in water rates, and more supply from desalination plants.
