  • A recent report shows people on the Costa del Sol consumed 10 times more water than the regional average in 2015 - a figure that is disputed

The average water consumption per person on the Costa del Sol is ten times the regional average, according to a report published by the Accounting Chamber of Andalucía.

The study, though published last week, refers to 2015 and shows the average on the western Costa is 1,223 litres per person per day (compared to 132 across Spain and 124 across Andalucía).

The provider for the area, Acosol, however, says that the figure is closer to 290 as the study doesn't take into account the water 'sold' to other towns.
