Reservoirs in the Guadalquivir basin in the Málaga province are down by 68.7 hm3 with capacity levels of those in the province of Jaén falling an average of 1.3 per cent.

In Córdoba, levels are down by 0.69 per cent, in Sevilla 1.48 per cent and in Granada 1.41 per cent.

Last month was the fourth wettest August since 1990, with an average of 31 square litres of rain falling on Spain – 36 per cent more than the usual.
