Mexico City shuts down water supply Authorities in Mexico City have shut down a main pipeline that supplies fresh water to five million residents, because reserves have fallen to record low levels. Many residents across the city spent the last hours before their taps ran dry filling bath tubs and containers with enough water to last a weekend. A huge pipeline supplying 20 per cent of the entire capital is being shut down for 36 hours. Part of the reason is that after a particularly dry spell reservoirs are at dangerously low levels. Another is that more than 50 per cent of the water carried by the pipeline leaks out before it reaches its destination. Switching it off will enable vital repairs to be made.
