Water rationed as months-long drought parches the country

Santo Domingo.- The months-long drought parching the country has prompted the rationing of water in various sectors of Greater Santo Domingo province receive water potable, water utility (CAASD) director Alejandro Montas announced Wednesday.

He said a decrease in rainfall over Haina River’s upper basin since mid January has dwindled the flow from the ISA-Mana-Duey aqueduct, for which various sectors aren’t getting enough piped water.

He said the supply from the Valdesia dam was rescheduled for areas north of Kennedy Av., so instead of Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, they’ll get water only Mondays and Thursdays.
