  • Regional minister Carmen Crespo made the announcement during a recent visit to the Axarquía

During a visit to the Axarquía, Andalucía's regional minister of Agriculture, Farming, Fishing and Sustainable Development, Carmen Crespo, said that work to connect the La Viñuela and La Concepción reservoirs would begin before the start of summer.

The connection will allow water to flow in both directions between the two reservoirs, depending on the water levels in each one at any time.

This is part of an effort to guarantee water supply to the Axarquía, which relies heavily on the tropical fruit industry, and Malaga city.
