MADRID – Three hundred thousand planned homes will not have a guaranteed water supply, a report warns on Monday.
The Spanish daily El Pais claims water authorities, which are linked to the environment ministry, say there are not enough supplies for thousands of new homes planned for 129 towns across Spain.
Hundreds of expats may be affected in the areas where the homes are planned.
The report says the existing levels of water supply cannot provide for 189 developments.
Supplies from the rivers Jucar and Segura and especially in the Valencia and Murcia areas are worst affected.
But the reports from the authorities, which do not have legal value, have been largely ignored by the planning authorities, claims the paper.
