Mexican officials have imposed severe water restrictions in Mexico City due to a drought that has dried up the capital’s reservoirs. The Cutzamala system, which supplies water to over 20 million residents, is at historic seasonal lows, 44% lower than normal. Water restrictions were initially imposed on October 17, reducing water from Cutzamala by roughly 8%. However, a further 25% cut was implemented on Friday, affecting twelve boroughs in the west of the city. The restrictions are expected to last for several months, as the rainy season is not expected until May.
