The CBHSF (Basin Committee of the São Francisco River) was also not informed of the drought on the river's source. The vice-president of the association, Wagner Soares Costa, said he is in "doubt" about the possible lack of water.
- We is in doubt because the river has a spring only, but a group. It is next to one another.
Even so, according to the representative, the local situation is worrying.
- It is true that the flow greatly reduced, is scary. Três Marias is very low, which means that in all rivers that supply above the dam is critical.
The watershed of the São Francisco River crosses seven Brazilian states and is considered one of the most important by volume of water transported in the semiarid region of the country. São 639,219 kilometers of drainage area and average flow of 2,850 m³ / s, accounting for 2% of total Brazil.
According to Costa, the current condition, especially in Minas Gerais, is "uncertainty".
- It is a very big concern because a river with a crisis ... this is worrying for other rivers that are in that region. The Sweet river flow is too low, the Jequitinhonha too.
The only solution, according to the vice-chairman of the committee, is to wait for the rain.
- It has to rain. And in abundance.
