Inhabitants of sectors of Greater Santo Domingo continue to depend on the rations of drinking water provided by the Santo Domingo Aqueduct and Sewer Corporation (CAASD) to meet their basic needs, due to the drought that affects the supply systems.
According to the CAASD, the deficit continued in the afternoon yesterday at around 70 million gallons, since production was at 350 while normal is 420 gallons.
In parts of the municipalities Pedro Brand, Los Alcarrizos, Santo Domingo Oeste, Pantoja and others in the area, they put the tanks and other containers out on the streets waiting for the supply trucks of the CAASD.
Shortages were also reported in sectors of the National District, such as Villa Consuelo, Villa Francisca, San Carlos, Guachupita and February 27, in addition to Los Mina, Isabelita, Mameyes, Pensador, and others in the eastern area.
Housewives are shouting because when the trucks sent by the CAASD do not arrive, they are forced to buy a water tank for between 70 and 100 pesos, affecting the few resources they get for food.
