Emergency works are being carried out to improve the dams and tunnels of La Viñuela reservoir in the Axarquía.

The aim of the emergency works is to remove sand that has accumulated in the reservoir basins so that the water "arrives as clean as possible and to make the most of the rainwater", the Junta said in a press statement.

The work is being carried out as the reservoir is at just 21.3 per cent of its capacity.
