Carraízo Dam Rationing Lifted

TRUJILLO ALTO - After several months under a water service rationing, over 160,000 residents of the metropolitan area of San Juan will have a continuous service. It was announced by Autoridad de Acueductos y Alcantarillados (PRASA in English acronym) executive president, engineer Alberto M. Lázaro Castro, canceling a rationing plan that saw water service interruptions for up to 72 hours, causing enormous changes in the way of life of restaurants, schools and industries alike. 

"We hereby announce the end of the rationing for clients of Carraízo. It is important that people keep saving water and uses it prudently. I call everybody to not rush and start using water to clean garages or roofs. The order to use water in a prudent manner is still active." This means that the plan of fines for using water carelessly is still in place. Loíza lake, created by Carraízo dam, registered a level of 38.79 meters on Monday September 21, only 0.21 meters to achieve the goal PRASA had established to lift the rationing.
