Even though Panama's National Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers (IDAAN) has been taking measures to conserve water since last December, concerns over the water supply continue due to the ongoing ENSO phenomenon of "El Niño" which is expected to last until next June, said Rodrigo Barragán on the TVN Channel 2 news broadcast this morning. He said the water supplies in Panama city depend on Alajuela Lake which was at its maximum capacity in December at the start of the dry season, but which has since shown a marked decline. Barragán, called on the public to save water and said people should "only use what is necessary to avoid rationing." He said in 2007 there was a similar situation but thanks to the cooperation of the public the IDAAN did not have to ration water. Barragán said that if they do eventually have to ration water, the cuts will be planned, programmed, and done by sectors, and noted that "in truth I hope it's something that we will not have to do, I don't like the idea."
