Before PM was built the rainwater ran down the hill and onward to the dry river beds.

After PM was finished the rainwater fell on the balconies,ran down water pipes to the road,down the roads to the rain gullies to more pipes and on to the dry river beds.

A large piece of Phase 3 Road has been excavated and not yet resurfaced.
Is the recent very large tonnage of water accumulating in the voids between Phase 3 and 2?

Actually, a bloke from the Junta comes round with a bucket, fills it up, and pours it into the Cuevas Dam. icon_biggrin.gif


Seriously tho, we are on very thirsty soil. The whole valley is basically bedrock, with lots and lots of soil, covered with clay. Perfect conditions for the formations of aquifers and underground lakes / rivers. So everytime it rains the water is sucked down into those aquifers, to either sit there or go out to sea.

The sheer amount of water sucked out of these aquifers has caused quite a bit of subsidence in some areas, such as in Cuevas where a promotion of VPOs recently fell into an underground (empty) aquifer nobody had noticed.

As to where it goes in your case? That close to the sea it should run down underground to the beach.

Well thank you for that Caravanasetc
Because the local builders always seem to build on the soil without footings or foundations I always assumed the ground in this area was direct bedrock.
Im reassured that the water will drain off.Very interesting.
