Water Hoarding in Brazil As One of the World's Largest Cities Runs Out Of water

Very good read. Im sure theres a bit of spin considering the site but good info none the less....

(NaturalNews) The historic drought gripping South America's largest nation is deepening, leading to rationing and forcing residents in one of the world's biggest cities to hoard water.

As reported by Reuters, besides hoarding, Brazilians in Sao Paulo are drilling homemade wells and implementing additional emergency measures ahead of forced rationing that could lead to water being shut off at taps for as long as five days a week.

In Sao Paulo, a major metropolitan city of 20 million, the main water reservoir has fallen to just 6 percent of its capacity, and the peak of the rainy season has recently passed.

The drought is more heavily concentrated around Sao Paulo, but other cities in Brazil's southeast, which is heavily populated, are also facing shortages and could eventually experience some rationing as well. Rio de Janeiro, a favorite tourist spot, is one of the cities that is facing less dire drought conditions.

As Reuters further reported:

Uncertainty over the drought and its consequences on jobs, public health and overall quality of life have further darkened Brazilians' mood at a time when the economy is struggling and President Dilma Rousseff's popularity is at an all-time low.

Largest protests ever took place during the weekend because of the corruption in the government and this is maybe the "last drop" so to speak.

Quote:
SÃO PAULO—More than a million Brazilians took to the streets in dozens of cities to vent frustration with President Dilma Rousseff, whose government is mired in a massive corruption scandal and struggling to right an economy teetering on the brink of recession.

Sunday’s rallies are reminiscent of mass demonstrations that rocked Brazil in 2013. But in contrast to those marches, which touched on a variety of grievances, protesters channeled their anger largely at Ms. Rousseff and her Workers’ Party, known as the PT.

The protests come days after Brazil’s Supreme Court gave the green light to prosecutors to investigate nearly 50 politicians in connection with a widening bribery and kickback scandal at state-controlled oil giant Petróleo Brasileiro SA. Most of those lawmakers, who have denied wrongdoing, are part of Ms. Rousseff’s ruling coalition.

Time for some new investments... it's probably too little too late for the poor bastards in Brazil this time around, but there are ways around a drought
