Rains lessen water deficit in reservoirs but…

HAVANA TIMES, Oct. 4 — Last week’s rains improved the situation of the reservoirs in the provinces in central and eastern Cuba, but were insufficient and it is necessary to continue saving. The precipitations benefited, among others, the Zaza Dam, the country’s largest, which now is at 53 per cent of its capacity, reported IPS.

    It would be nice to know more about the hydro-dynamix of the Cuban geo-ekonomik environment. And since we couldn’t possibly find out more about this cuban reality than what the imperialists already know, I think producing online interactive (i.e. layered) GIS maps and data wouldn’t be out of line for us Internet masses, if the cuban government can provide this for us someday.

    For instance: would we be able to see if further infrastructure development could be made to increase the efficiency of water catchment overall, considering the rather intermittent and semi-random nature of rainfall in the Antilles..? So that there would be little chance of reservoirs totally drying up in even severe droughts?
