Wa­ter ban in Gata

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

Gata coun­cil has banned the fill­ing up of swim­ming pools and the wa­ter­ing of fields due to the drought.

Last year, a pub­lic an­nounce­ment by Mayor Magda Men­gual urg­ing res­i­dents to cut down on con­sump­tion saved the wa­ter short­age sit­u­a­tion in ex­tremis.

This year, the coun­cil leader has stepped up the alert and threat­ened fines of be­tween ¤ 150 and ¤ 900 for mis­use of wa­ter re­sources.
