Heavy rains in May, June and the first days of July helped fill water dams in Cuba to 67 percent of their total capacity, a television news program reported today.
Over six million cubic meters of water, of close to 9,200 million possible, have been stored.
According to a report from the Buenos Dias news program, citing sources from the National Institute of Hydraulic Resource, only three of the 15 Cuban provinces have dams filled below half of their capacity.
Granma (43 percent), Mayabeque (38) and Havana (30) are in the worst shape, waterwise, despite heavy rains in
the last months, the source stated.
Pinar del Río, Artemisa, Villa Clara, Sancti Spiritus and Ciego de Avila show a favorable situation, as regards availability of stored water.
