Brazil’s worst drought in 80 years has left the Cantareira system, that provides greater Sao Paulo with most of its water, with the lowest water level on record, with daily rationing becoming common in the region’s smaller cities, according to the state authorities and the two main reservoirs serving metropolitan Sao Paulo, South America’s largest city, could dry out by February if relief does not arrive in the upcoming rainy season.
