Big water outage on tap for Sunday

By CB Online Staff

Tens of thousands of people in 18 municipalities will be without water service due to inspection work on the so-called Superaqueduct, the Puerto Rico Aqueduct & Sewer Authority said Tuesday.

The major pipeline from Arecibo to the San Juan metropolitan area delivers some 100,000 million gallons of water daily.

Municipalities to see low pressure or dry taps on Sunday include: San Juan, Bayamón, Guaynabo, Carolina, Caguas, Toa Baja, Canóvanas, Juncos, Arecibo, Manatí, Dorado, Hatillo, Morovis, Vega Alta, Vega Baja, Barceloneta, Florida and Ciales.

Service is expected to be fully restored before dawn Monday, Prepa officials said.

The utility said it plans to establish water tanker “oases” in affected areas.
