Low rainfall and high consumption of water plagues the Greater Metropolitan Area annually. This year there will be rationing throughout the metropolitan area so as to avoid always shutting off water from the same few towns.
Because of the El Niño phenomenon, there have been days without rainfall. There is a 10% reduction in rainfall and user demand is increased. AyA will make cuts in places that ordinarily do not suffer a lack of water in order to distribute the deficit of about 1,000 liters per second.
The idea is that the towns that usually suffer greatly are at least partially alleviated. 11,000 people frequently suffer from high shortages of over 12 hours a day. The dynamics of the rationing have not been announced yet.
To distribute water better, a systems interconnection work has been ongoing over the past months, as has the drilling of wells. In some areas that are not interconnected, water is delivered by tankers.
