Water will be out for thousands Wednesday in San José area

October 29, 2019

Thousands of people will temporarily be without water Wednesday while work is done at the Costa Rican Water and Sewer Institute (AyA) facilities in Tres Ríos, Cartago.

The outage is scheduled from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. and will affect primarily the province of San José.

“On Wednesday, October 30, the Tres Ríos plant will be out of operation due to the replacement of three main valves and other operational maneuvers,” AyA said on Facebook. “This will allow us to have better control and operation of the aqueduct.”

The following cantons will be impacted:

In San José province: Curridabat, Desamparados, Goicoechea, Montes de Oca, Moravia, San José, Vázquez de Coronado.

In Cartago province: La Unión.

AyA recommends that the public “take appropriate action,” but to story only enough water to accommodate basic needs during the outage.
