Default Sao Paulo nearly out of water

Brazil’s Public Ministry acknowledged that the Sao Paulo water supply might only last another 100 days as drought conditions continue. The city with more than 20 million people is suffering its worst drought in at least 80 years. The most intense drought conditions and heat were felt from eastern Paraguay into the Brazil states from Parana to Mato Grosso and Bahia.

Vicente Andreu, president of Brazil's Water Regulatory Agency, warned São Paulo residents to brace for a "collapse like they've never seen before" if the drought continues. At least 14 million residents (of the 44 million that live in São Paulo state) have been affected by shortages as more than 35 municipalities have been forced to ration water. Already over 140 Brazilian cities have implemented water rationing during the worst drought in over twenty years, with some neighborhoods only receiving water once every three days.
