Costa Blanca water study


In the Amadorio reservoir, the old road bridge from Orxeta to Vila Joiosa was under water and had not been seen for years until 2012.  It has been high and dry since the drought began

The recent drought (2012-2016… and continuing?) took an interesting turn in December with a whole year’s rainfall drowning us in just a few days before the Christmas holiday.  The Year 9 study of the water system of Benidorm and Marina Baja starts with the drought and then continues with an examination of local water supply and demand.  This involves the physical and human geography of the surrounding area.

To see more about this, follow the development of our project on the Year 9 pages of this blog: Costa Blanca Climate


About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have three blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog begun in 2015, plus an old donkey blog which ran from 2010 to 2015.
