MADRID, 1 Feb. (EDITIONS) -
The Government of Catalonia has declared a drought emergency in the Ter-Llobregat system, which supplies Barcelona and its metropolitan area and also Girona and its surroundings, at this Thursday's extraordinary meeting of the Interdepartmental Drought Commission, before the current situation of the reservoirs due to the lack of rain, and a total of 202 municipalities that were in pre-emergency will be affected.
As provided for in the Regional Government's Special Drought Plan, the state of emergency will be declared when the reservoirs of the Ter-Llobregat system reach 100 cubic hectometres, which represents around 16% of their capacity.
The following map shows the current alert level of each hydrological district and the municipalities it covers.
The Catalan Water Agency has an information system that allows you to consult the situation and effects of the drought on the internal accounts of Catalonia, as well as the alert level currently in force.
The portal offers detailed information on the hydrographic basins of the entire autonomous community with the exception of the reservoirs of the Ebro Hydrographic Basin located to the west, as well as the current restrictions.
