Recent Rains Will Not Prevent Water Rationing


The Acueductos y Alcantarillados (AyA) – water and sewer utility – said on Thursday that the recent rains will not prevent their water rationing program in effect.

Sergio Núñez, assistant manager of the Gestión de Sistemas del Gran Área Metropolitana (G.A.M) y Periféricos del Instituto de Acueductos y Alcantarillados (AyA), explained that the rainfall experienced in many parts of the country during the past week or so will not result in an increase in the water level in supply tanks.

Núñez was emphatic that despite the rainfall the AyA will not abandon their water rationing policy of the last few months, not until the rainy season is upon us and the levels in the water tanks begins to rise.

The AyA official said that less people that expected have been affected by the water rationing programs in effect, especially in the higher altitudes and beaches.

But, don’t tell that to the thousands who daily battle with dry taps.
