Water and river systems

Due to the steep slopes and torrential rains, there are no less than five rivers, all of which flow into the River Guadalmedina before it reaches the Agujero reservoir above Malaga: Arroyo de las Vacas; Arroyo Chaperas; Arroyo de los Frailes; Arroyo Humaina and Arroyo Hondo.

Total annual rain water collected from these five affluents is estimated at 700 mm and can be of torrential nature, on average every seven years.

The low long term impact of torrential rain and the generally impermeable rock favour run-off as opposed to absorption, therefore leading to a lack of water, especially between June and October.
