A serious question, we have had our home in Villa Hermosa for many years. It is about mid-level not at the top of the hill, nor at the bottom. We very rarely have water issues, would anyone know why? Thanks, and yes we are thankful for our situation.

I don't know the answer to your question Bombero but I have not run out of water in years. People post when they don't have water, not when they do. Storage capacity usually solves the problem. I can easily go 3 weeks without water. Storage is not that expensive.

I have been in my house in Costa Del Mar (Algodones Beach) for 11+ years. I have a 2000 liter tinaca. When it is just my wife and I, we don't run out. When we have guest we have run out twice even with conservative measures. Every year the water supply becomes less reliable. In the last month we have more days without incoming water than days with.  We could all buy more tinacas, but, it doesn't address the real problem. When people ask about buying property in SC, this negative issue is one of at least three others that I disclose to them.

apparently it has been reported in the papers that the wells are shut down for water level measurement! this activity affects guaymas, empalme, san carlos and all the other surrounding communities!
the tests are to be finished sunday and service returned monday!

john, your post #9, you have a 5000 liter / 1320 gallon cistern!

It's only gonna get worse, unfortunately. I drove to Empalme today and noticed two new INFONAVIT subdivisions going in. About 50 houses all with a tinaco on the roof and yes, they will have priority over us. It's lookin like a long dry Snowbird season coming up!

We first bought in the early 80,s and have always had water issues. And every year water company said the same thing, " "We,re working on it now and should have all the problems solved in a matter of days" Makes you wonder if all the new fancy hotels and condos have water shortages or if that is where our water is going....

i heard sunday from  a reliable source, that CEA and CFE are no longer allowing new hookups for new projects! they are realizing that they have neared or have already surpassed their peak output! 
it was also mentioned in my conversation that rafeal caballero had in the past donated land for a CFE substation! that would solve some of the current blackouts we are seeing!
regarding CEA, well who really knows?

No new hood-ups for new projects! Last night, 6/10/2017, the midnight oil was burning at the Mauro Ramirez Group's office in San Carlos. I don't know what that means, but they are investing megabucks in subdivision expenses across and beyond the old Club Med. Frankie, this is right close to you fella(!), so if there are to be no new CFE or CEA hook-ups, these people are spinning their wheels, throwing money to the wind... really I don't think so. They know something we don't!
