The town halls of the Balearic Islands take measures to deal with the drought

The municipalities of the Balearic Islands are taking measures to deal with the drought.

The town halls of the Balearic Islands are taking different measures to save water and deal with the effects of drought.

The Balearic Islands are currently experiencing a drought and the situation is worrying, as stated by the General Directorate of Water Resources in a recent meeting with managers and technicians from different municipalities. The increase in demand for drinking water during the summer, the lack of precipitation and high temperatures have increased the pressure on this invaluable resource in recent months.

In Arta, for example, the hydrological drought index has been in the pre-alert phase since last summer. If this situation continues, it could soon directly affect the population and its activities.

The Arta city council, which unanimously approved the sustainable water management plan on July 25, will step up its efforts to reduce water consumption. It will repair any leaks in the municipal water network, monitor the condition of wells more frequently and adopt better control of water consumption in municipal buildings. It will also check water meters to detect those that are being used illegally and has launched a public information campaign to raise awareness of the current situation.
