On Saturday, Feb. 5, the National Water Commission (Conagua) cut off access to potable water for residences of some parts of Mexico City and the State of Mexico in order to allow repairs to be made on an “unforeseen problem” in the Cutzamala System, main source of clean water for the Valley of Mexico.

Water supplies were cut off for up to 20 hours in some parts of the capital, with nearly full service reinstated in the early hours of Sunday, Feb. 6, Conagua reported.

On Sunday afternoon, Conagua said that repairs to the control mechanisms of the gates of the Dos Ríos port had now been completed and service was now restored.
