Puerto Rico orders water-rationing measures amid dry spell

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Puerto Rico imposed strict water rationing Wednesday that will make daily showers a challenge for tens of thousands of people and force businesses such as restaurants and car washes to brace for a summer expected to be drier than usual.

More than 160,000 people living in and near the capital of San Juan will have access to water only every other day, with officials warning that service could be cut for up to 36 hours if water levels at the island’s main reservoirs keep dropping. The measures could remain in place for months.
