January 15th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) The Costa Rican Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers (AyA) said that some 40,000 people would face water-rationing beginning in February. The most affected areas will be Escazu, Santa Ana, Ciudad Colon and Alajuelita.
AyA’s Sergio Nunez said the measure would be necessary to ensure water availability during this year’s dry season.
Nunez said that water supplies would be cut off overnight, reopened in the morning hours until about 11 a.m., then cut off again until the afternoon.
Nunez said the rationing could begin the second week of February.
