Two Mozambique Cities To Restrict Water Supply To Alternate Days


Mozambican authorities will tighten water restrictions in the capital, Maputo, and the neighboring city of Matola because dams that supply the locations have fallen to one-fifth of their capacity, the Water Ministry said. The two cities, home to more than 2.7 million people, will cut water supplies on alternating days, according to Public Works, Housing and Water Resources Minister João Machatine. Levels at the Pequenos Libombos dam, the main water source, fell to 20.4 percent, from 21 percent on Jan. 23.
