From next week water force will be drop down during the night on peak days in the month of September. Higher buildings could lose their supplies altogether.

Water Company Acea says it has controlled to stop 1,300 water drops since month of May.

Extraordinary lack:

But Rome's "extraordinary lack" means it has less and less water available for the capital's citizens.

Rainfall in Rome is down to 70% on the previous three years, the company told in its statement.

Romans had already been exposing with water helping earlier in the summer season. This is because of a row over water being extracting from Lake Bracciano, north of Rome. This is which provides the city with 8% of its water requirement. At one point the Vatican said it was rounding off its 100 sources.

But the water company was finally accepted to continue using the lake. Therefore it promised to drop its withdrawals from 1,100 to 400 liters per sec.

And it was capable to hold off taking further decision in August. Therefore water utilization goes down radically because Romans head to the coats for their holidays. However, with the summer break coming to an end the effects of the lack are even worse than previous.

Water levels:

Water levels in the two early bridge of providing Rome, Capo and Marcio. They have continued to fall and Acea has said it has no option. But it has to act at the times of peak utilization in September in both Rome and Fiumicino.

Italy, like much of the rest of Southern Europe, has been hitting by months of low rainfall in more areas.

But Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi won power promising to increase the city's infamous transport, water and junk services. These are which have been overwhelming by fraud and lack of investment. So far there has little bit sign of any development.

The water company says it has tested 4,700 km, almost 90 percent of the Rome water area, for escapes.

But the national government has explored alert at the potential health penalties of the latest step. Even business leaders say the water shortages have led to severe problems in the tourism and reproducing sector.
