As per, Catalonian authorities recently declared a drought emergency in over 20 municipalities, due to lack of rainfall in a year in a half.

Reservoir levels overall have been decreasing and for example, the Darnius Boadella one, located in north-eastern Spain, is at just 20% of its designed capacity.

Thus, Catalonian authorities have imposed water restrictions on 22 villages in the region found near the border with France, as water supplies are dangerously low.

Catalonia and Andalusia are Spain's heaviest affected regions by drought and lack of rainfall and some citizens have been restricted to using only as much as 200 liters of water per day.

While water consumption hasn't been limited for humans, its use for agricultural practices has been largely banned for now, while industrial players must lower water usage by 25%.
