Low water level in Río de la Plata river causes supply cuts

Several areas of Buenos Aires City and Greater Buenos Aires area suffered water supply cuts and low pressure today due to an extraordinary low water level in Río de la Plata River, the main source of the AySA water company.

AySA said in a press release that the unusually low level of the Río de la Plata River, that down by 2.5 meters, are caused by “strong winds from the West” that began to affect the area yesterday and continued today.

The winds, AySA explained, reduced “the water volume that enters the plant at General San Martín” in Palermo, and “General Belgrano plant” in Bernal to a lesser extent, causing a “lower supply of drinking water”.

“Low water pressure or lack of supply could affect Buenos Aires City and Greater Buenos Aires area,” the company said.

The wheater conditions are expected to improve by the end of the day, allowing the company to restore the water supply.
