The authorities in Trinidad and Tobago have implemented water rationing as the country continues to battle a prolonged dry season.



The Water and Sewerage Authority says it is introducing a temporary water supply schedule for parts of the twin-island republic as normal rainfall conditions in April were below usual levels.



The Authority says a similar pattern is forecast for this month.



It said this situation calls for greater management of supplies to ensure the availability of water for the duration of the dry season.
