Lack of potable water flow is being blamed on El Niño
Lack of potable water flow, hot and dry weather is being blamed on El Niño

QCOSTARICA – The absence of an adequate of flow of potable water will be greater felt in many areas of Guanacaste during Semana Santa (Easter Week).

For this the water and sewer utility, the Instituto de Acueductos y Alcantarillados (AyA), is appealing to the conscience of visitors to ration their use of water. No need to tell residents, they already live this reality daily.

Among the recommendations to tourists, national and foreign, is to take shorter showers, use less towels and don’t change the bed sheets daily.

Javier Valverde, AyA assistant manager of peripheral areas, made the recommendations this week on the morning radio program, Nuestra Voz, asking vacationers, especially those headed to Guanacaste, to use less water.

The water flow in the North Pacific coast has been critical for the past year, with temperatures reaching highs of 39 Celsius (102 Farenheit) and more.

The extremely dry and hot weather in Guanacaste is blamed on the El Niño effect, says the national weather service, the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional (IMN).  Click here for current weather conditions.

Valverde said that Coco, Tamarindo and Hermosa – three hot spots for Semana Santa vacationers – along with Liberia, are the most affected by the lack of rain, as it affects groundwater and the supply of liquid to users.

The dry conditions are not only affecting human consumption of water, but also livestock, farming, agriculture and apiculture (honey extraction).
