The main dams in the State of Guanajuato have benefited from the rains registered in the week, however it has been enough to exceed the 50 percent capacity index at an average general level of 47 percent compared to the NAMO (Maximum Ordinary Water Level ).

It should be noted that several dams have had considerable increases during Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, an example is that of Palote located in the city of León, which according to the monitoring of the National Water Commission (CONAGUA) has increased its capacity from 28 percent to 32 percent, accounting for 3,071 hm³ (cubic hectometres, which represents one million cubic meters), prior to those days they were 2,657 hm³, so the differential increase was 0.414 hm³.

Another dam at risk was the Laguna de Yuriria, which a few days ago was almost below 10 percent of its capacity, and as of today it has already increased to 15 percent compared to NAMO.

Other dams have not gone through the same situation, that of Peñuelitas located in Dolores Hidalgo has only increased by 1 percent, rising from 7 to 8, and is that several municipalities and areas of the state still have low rainfall.
