Itu Protests for Water
According to CNN's Shasta Darlington, who has been reporting on the issue since April, water levels are not yet at zero, but they're so low that pumps are needed to produce any water from the reservoirs: "Starting on August 15, the level of the second-biggest reservoir supplying Sao Paulo, Nazare Paulista, got so low it no longer flowed into system and they have had to start pumping the lake-bottom. It's not at zero or empty, but they had to start pumping it."
"Rainy season starts in October and we will be squeaking by to get there," added Darlington.
