I’ve been doing a little looking into the above and would welcome comments from others. 2005 so far has been the driest year in Spain since 1887!
Unless there is a lot of rain this winter, there are going to be widespread water restrictions next summer- in some places there already are.
Like many, we rent our house out and people aren’t going to want to hear there’s little or no water.
What options are there- can an urbanisation or communidad arrange its own supply?
Apparently there was a drought in the mid 90s- what happened then?

In the mid 90s I remember an old man in a bar in Fuengirola who had a sign around his neck on a piece of string that read “Excuse me if I smell, our urbanisation has been 3 days with no water”.
We’ve recently been warned that the council will be reducing water pressure starting next month, though no talk of cuts yet. Let’s hope for a wet winter and a soggy spring.

Where I live you can buy tanker loads of water that works out not much more expensive than metered water.
I’ve been told that using excessive amounts of metered water (like filling a swimming pool) is illegal; there is also a moral issue here too.

We had a 2 tanker deliveries last month in the Mijas Golf region, don’t actually know how much the community paid for it but the water was disgusting, it looked like it had been pumped straight from a pond. it was filthy and only suitable for using for flushing the toilet!!
