Other than buying bottled water, the only way to get clean, drinkable water is to buy a pipa, or water truck, that will fill tanks at private residences. They fill at wells in hte mountains that surround the city and drive in to unload. 5 years ago apopular hotel bought one 10,000 liter truck in a year to suplement the city's water supply. Between January and June of this year, the same hotel had purchased 100 of these trucks.
