Dams in Morocco: Filling Rate Exceeding 50% in the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima Region

The latest daily report from the General Directorate of Water Engineering, emanating from the Ministry of Equipment and Water, published this Saturday, reveals encouraging news concerning water reserves in Morocco. Indeed, the filling rate of large dams in the Tangier-Tétouan-Al Hoceima region has exceeded 50% of their total capacity.

According to the report, the water stock in the region's dams stands at 870.28 million cubic meters, representing an overall filling rate of 50.55% against the total capacity of 1721.7 million. of cubic meters.

This news is welcomed as the country continues to face challenges related to water supply, particularly during periods of drought. The availability of a considerable quantity of water in the dams of the Tangier-Tétouan-Al Hoceima region is a source of relief for the agricultural, industrial and domestic sectors, which rely heavily on these reserves.

Among the highlights of the report, we note that several dams have reached a filling rate of 100%, thus demonstrating effective management of water resources in these areas. However, it is also important to highlight that some dams have recorded filling rates lower than the regional average, requiring special attention to ensure balanced water management across the country.

In a context where water is a precious and strategic resource, these positive data offer a glimmer of hope for the future of water security in Morocco. However, it is essential to maintain constant vigilance and continue efforts to optimize the use of this vital resource, while taking into account the environmental and climatic challenges facing the country.

In conclusion, exceeding the threshold of 50% filling in the large dams of the Tangier-Tétouan-Al Hoceima region is an important step towards guaranteeing a stable and reliable water supply for the citizens and economic sectors of the country. However, this should not distract us from our commitment to continue efforts for sustainable management of water resources and to ensure their availability for future generations.
