Cuba’s Largest Reservoir Very Low

HAVANA TIMES, June 7 — The Zaza Dam, Cuba’s largest reservoir with a capacity to hold 1.020 billion cubic meters of water, is barely storing 14 per cent of that volume due to the drought that is affecting the island since late 2008, reported the local press.  The decrease in the water level has forced the authorities to speed up fishing in that aquifer to avoid the massive death of the fish because of lack of oxygen, reported IPS.
