Cuban reservoirs were storing over 7 billion cubic meters when November concluded, which represents 257 million more than a year ago.
According to the National Institute of Water Resources, the 235 reservoirs in Cuba are at 80 percent of their total capacity of 1.7 billion cubic meters of water.
The Cuban provinces with the best situation are Santiago de Cuba and Guantanamo, both with 98 percent of their dams at total capacity, and Granma with 90 percent, while Cienfuegos, Las Tunas and Holguin regions present 89 percent.
Though rains favored the reservoirs of 70 dams supplying water in the country, Cuba continues with its water saving policy.
