Is there water rationing in SC at present?  I've heard an unsubstantiated rumor that water rationing has been imposed for Guaymas and San Carlos for the foreseeable future.  Does anyone have factual details?

When they cut your water off you end up rationing whether you like it or not.

Guaymas has not gotten water every day for years. Our experience in San Carlos is that we are now on ¨tandeos¨ water rationing. There is no fixed schedule but usually at our condos the water goes off in the late afternoon and comes back in the morning.


I do not believe these ¨tandeos¨ have been going on for years.  There have always been water outages but the water would come back on and we would usually get it immediately.  Others on down the line would wait for days.  We think the ¨tandeos¨ are to better distribute the water but nothing has actually come officially from CEA.

Get an in ground cistern and a pump.

When we had our house down there we never went w/o water and the pump made super strong water pressure.

My place has 2 pumps. One pump sucks water out of the incoming line into my tanaco (I don't worry about water line pressure, when there is water my system sucks it out of the line and into my storage tank). The other pump pressurizes the water out of the tanaco for the property use.

We just got a notice at Solimar that we will only get water in the eve's, 3x a week, which is new to our area. Don't know if they are doing their yearly well testing, or fixing a pump at a well that seems to be a yearly event, but they may be just trying to save $$ now with less tourists in town.

Fact is....For the foreseeable future,  The water problem is not going to get any better than it is right now.

Most likely it will continue to get worse, a lot worse, as the population increases.

AND, just wait until the new San Jose Hospital is operational and requires all the water San Carlos is currently getting...which isn’t enough.

I wonder why the realtors never speak up.
But then I answered my question.
The water and sewer problem is a win-win for them.
Think about it.
They make money on the naive newbies coming in and the frustrated old folks
wanting out.

It's a really dry year here in the Municipality of Alamos (which includes the Pueblo of Alamos and about 90 other pueblos with populations from 50 to 1500 people).

I spoke to a rancher in one of our southern most pueblos, Rancheria, yesterday while I was down that way. He told me that for the last two weeks, to water his small herd of 40 cattle, twice a day with 2500Ltrs, he sometimes has to drive as far as the Sinaloa border to fill it. It depends on what pueblo within a half an hour radius of his ranch has water. To pump from the rivers requires very special permits this time of year.

We are rationing in Alamos, with each barrio receiving about 12 hours of water every other day... similar to what you all are experiencing. Of course, everything changes for us around June 20th-23rd, when we receive our first good rain like clock work. Then, we will have plenty as it all starts running down the Sierra and filling our reservoir, many wells and holding ponds (holding ponds are for livestock, not humans). Last year we didn't get the rain we have enjoyed the previous 3 years. Hopefully this year's rainy season will be better.

Anyway, it might be that things are just tough all over in Sonora this year.

This morning I went to the CEA office and got the water rationing schedule for the Caracol Peninsula and Caracol Touristico.


Water will be supplied as follows:


Monday - 10 pm to 2 am (only 4 hours)
Tuesday - nothing 
Wednesday  - 3 pm to 2 am (11 hours)
Thursday - nothing
Friday - nothing 
Saturday  - nothing 
Sunday  - 6 am to noon (only 6 hours)


So the water will be turned off 96 hours (over 4 days) between Thursday morning at 2 am until Sunday morning at 6 am.  Unless my math is wrong.
Then a gap of no water for 34 hours from Sunday noon until Monday at 10 pm.
Another gap of 37 hours between 2 a.m. Tuesday until Wednesday at 3 pm.


This schedule allows these two neighborhoods to receive only 21 hours of water feed from CEA for the entire week.

The Pump you have that sucks the water out of the line, is NOT allowed in Mexico (You get the Water first and then maybe our Neibor).

Yesterday CEA told me that the Ranchitos would have water Monday and Friday from 8am to 8pm. That's right, just two days a week. Schedule will be adjusted after they see how this works.


And Jimmy, do your neighbors know that you are using a lift pump? When your pump is turned on they will only get a sucking noise from their hoses connected to the street as you take ALL the water.

IF we get 12 hrs of water twice a week in the ranchitos I'll be ecstatic......


That would totally take care of our problems IMO.
