Thousands of Puerto Rican households limited to water twice weekly as drought continues

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – As one of the worst droughts in Puerto Rico’s history drags on, the government has ramped-up water rationing, limiting hundreds of thousands of households in the San Juan metropolitan area and the North Coast to only two days of water a week.

On Sunday, Alberto Lázaro, president of Puerto Rico’s Water and Sewage Authority, announced the third phase of a water rationing plan that began last May. Beginning this Thursday, families will have potable water either on Tuesdays and Saturdays, or on Wednesdays and Sundays, depending on where they live.
