New thinking on water transfers?

There's a very interesting article here about the possibility of renewed water transfers from the Tajo to the Segura river systems, which seem to be based on what is said to be a very surprising change of attitude by the President of the Extramadura regional government. This is a political football in Spain and this is I believe the first recent move by one of the regional governments which actually have reasonable water supplies in their territories to consider such transfers, so badly-needed by areas such as Valencia and Murcia.
