it will affect foreigners the same way it affects other human life form. when there is no more water, then air will come out of your pipe, just like it is doing where i live. we are in the throes of El Nino, and the entire region will be having droughts until, maybe, next year. there isn?t much water around any more.Is DR in awater crisis and how will that affect foreigners?
Pulled from the news story on the left side of the DR-1 home page.Yesterday, Tuesday 21 July 2015, the water system could only provide 329.74 million gallons of water per day n a normal daily supply of water is 400 million gallons. This deficit of 71 million gallons of water per day is expected to increase and CAASD simply cannot distribute water that it simply does not have.
Yes.Is DR in awater crisis ...?
Not necessarily. A reverse osmosis plant can be used to process sea water into drinking water.Tap water or purified water, in the end it's the same source, just an extra step of purification.
I know that can be done, however, e.g. Planeta Azul buys ('buys'?) the water from CAASD, purifies it and sells it in 5 gallon jugs.Not necessarily. A reverse osmosis plant can be used to process sea water into drinking water.
The water company is not going to pump seawater to your house.
Rain dance, anyone?
I want a drilled well. How much for 80' did it cost you ? Do you have a contact for them? What area of the north cost do you live in? tksI just had a well installed at one of my properties today. I went down 80' , and I have 10' of standing water at the bottom of the well. Not a bad level given the lack of rain on the north coast.
So yes it affected this foreigner because I had to buy a well. Hahah
