Abstract

Practically, since its foundation, Mexico City has had serious problems with the supply of water for its residents, problems such as the lack of near and abundant sources of water and the lack of a culture of water. In this work the problem of the water supply to Mexico City is treated from a holistic perspective by identifying and analyzing the most meaningful problems, those which greatly impact the quality of the water service. Firstly, some of the main characteristics of the hydraulic system are presented, so that anyone might have an idea of the origins of the current problems and the difficulty of arriving at real solutions. Then, the most relevant problems are identified and classified into two categories, the first category includes the most outstanding problems. Later the first category problems are described in order to carry out an analysis of them. Some alternatives of solution are suggested for these problems.
