He said the dams´ level dropped from  313 meters above sea level to a critical point at 311 meters.

He said the Central Mountains didn’t get much of the latest showers as some parts of the country for which Tavera-Bao has dropped to a drastic level.

Coraasan Operations manager Hector Jaquez said the dams´ average capacity is 320 meters above the level, adding that the situation has forced the rationing of potable water from Tavera-Bao   after production fell 25%.
