Rain shortage in Puerto Vallarta this season affects available drinking water
Rains recorded during this season in Puerto Vallarta have been insufficient to increase the availability of potable water, said César Abarca Gutiérrez, director of the Drinking Water, Drainage and Sewerage Services (SEAPAL) Vallarta.
The head of the department said that this year has been one of the driest in the last 20 years in Puerto Vallarta and the North Coast region, which has prevented the recharge of wells and sources of water.
Added the problem is the growth in drinking water consumption, due to the growth of the urban population of Vallarta and the arrival of more and more visitors to the tourist destination.
Abarca Gutiérrez said that the rainfall recorded during June and July have been the lowest in recent years, which is why SEAPAL Vallarta considers the exploration and opening of new wells, with the intention of mitigating this vital need.
