It’s not good news, I’m afraid. Due to extensive repairs needed for the Cutzamalá water distribution system, there will be massive water shortages affecting an estimated 3.5 million people in 13 mayoral districts in CDMX and 13 municipalities in the State of Mexico. The shortages crisis is expected to last six days. link This is actually Stage 3 of a series of water restrictions imposed by systems maintenance.

As of 31 October, for 72 hours there will be no water availability during the Cutzamalá repairs in Álvaro Obregón, Cuauhtemoc, Cuajimalpa and Miguel Hidalgo. It will take another 72 hours to fully restore service. Other areas shown below will suffer an estimated 30% reduction in water delivery.

Additionally, you can narrow it down by colónias here.

The drill:

31 October: water shutoff to affected areas began today, but water already in the system means there were no expected problems until after noon.

1 and 2 November: there will be no water service to the affected 13 mayoral districts in CDMX and 13 municipalities in the State of Mexico. Water deliveries by tanker trucks will be prioritized to schools, hospitals, asylums, congregate meals sites, markets, cemeteries and detention facilities.

3 November: conclusion of work on the Cutzamalá maintenance project and initial water flows in the afternoon.

4 November: filling of the citiy’s primary water distribution networks begins at 5:00 am.

5 and 6 November: water services and reservoir levels are expected to normalize, though high demands are expected as a result of water shortages occurring during the waterless period.

7 November: water service is expected return to close to normal levels, but areas still having shortages will be supplemented by water delivered by tanker trucks.

Hotels in most severely affected areas probably have cisterns, and may supplement the water with deliveries from tanker trucks. Those in areas with 70% of usual supply should see some reductions in water use. But at best, this would imply significant scarcity of water.

Areas denoted in dark red will be 100% without water.

Areas denoted in yellow will have 70% of usual supply.

Areas denoted in light blue will experience no shortages.
