The National Emergency Commission (CNE) declared Guanacaste on yellow alert drought status due to El Niño’s impact this year. In their statement, “a meteorologist in Liberia this month registered a deficit of 70% in rainfall. He noted that the average rainfall in the region is 247.4 mm while this year, in July, there have been only 16.6 mm." That’s nothin’.
What does this mean? Conserve on water consumption!!! Just some ideas to help out: Defrost in the fridge. Let grass grow longer. Re-use “waste water” for plants. Shorten shower time….you get the point. Oh, and you might want to make sure you have some water stored, just in case they start limiting water hours.
