Lake Chapala water level continues steady recovery

Replenished by heavy rainfall, Lake Chapala has gained enough water in the last two weeks to supply the Guadalajara metropolitan area for almost a year and a half.

From September 9 to 24, the water level rose by 26 centimeters, equivalent to 260 million cubic meters of water, the National Water Commission (Conagua) reported. Guadalajara draws 180 million cubic meters a year (60 percent of its water supply) from Chapala, meaning the last 15 days of rain would be sufficient to supply the metropolitan area for just over 17 months.
