Rome's Bracciano Lake in critical condition

Lago Bracciano, an important source of potable water for Rome, is currently in a critical condition as a result of Italy's ongoing drought.

Since early July, Rome has begun switching off 30 of the more than 2,000 nasoni drinking fountains each day to help stem decreasing levels at the lake. The fountains are likely to remain turned off until September. Photos Raniero Bei.
