A supply of bottled water is one solution to the water rationing that will see taps dry from 6 up to 12 hours or more daily in many areas of San José!

It’s summer in Costa Rica. And that also means water rationing. Yes, WATER RATIONING!

The Acueductos y Alcantarillados (AyA) – national water and sewer utility – announced the rationing on Monday that will affect tens of thousands of homes in the Gran Area Metropolitana (GAM) – Greater Metropolitan Area of San José and as far as Atenas and Puntarenas, with limited to full water cuts daily.

The areas most affected – some 20,000 homes – with 12 hours or more of daily water cuts are: Alajuelita, Escazú, Santa Ana. In adtion athe areas of , Alto López and Río Grande in Atenas and Santa Teresa in Cóbano, will see their water taps dry for more than 12 hours daily.

Another 160,000 living in  Moravia, Desamparados and Goicoechea will be without water for 6 to 12 hours daily.

In addition, 175,000 homes in other areas of San José will see water shortages of up to 6 hours at a time.

The AyA says it will monitor the situation and will provide water tanker trucks to areas most affected, not only in San José and the Central Valley, but to any area in the country where water shortages affect living conditions.

The lack of rain for more than two months has reduced water levels in the storage tanks and the rationing is to eliminate a complete lack of supply water.

The rationing program is expected to continue until the rainy season kicks in May.
