Haiti - FLASH : Drinking water may be lacking in several municipalities as of this week...
The fuel shortage, which has lasted and worsened for several weeks in Haiti, continues to have serious consequences.

After the Health Centers https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35183-haiti-flash-due-to-lack-of-fuel-the-bernard-mevs-hospital-is-no-longer-welcoming-new-patients.html , shops, banks https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35177-haiti-notice-banks-reduce-their-opening-hours-and-days.html it's the turn of the National Directorate of Drinking Water and Sanitation (DINEPA) to be heading for a no functioning state, if the generators which supply about twenty pumping stations for the metropolitan area alone, are not supplied with diesel fuel very quickly.

"We have great difficulties in supplying our reservoirs and consequently, in supplying the populations who are concerned with drinking water [...] We need nearly 18,000 gallons of diesel to operate our installations at the metropolitan zone level for 10 days,"" declared on Sunday November 7th Guito Édouard, Director General of DINEPA, on a radio station in the capital.

Despite his numerous representations and contacts with the national authorities, none of the petroleum product suppliers can supply DINEPA with fuel so far.

"Without fuel this week, the populations of the municipalities of Delmas, Tabarre and Cité Soleil risk no longer receiving drinking water" warned Guito Édouard
