Abstract

The urban water supply in Mexico is a prevalent issue in Mexican affairs and calls attention to the failings of numerous Mexican states over time. This book will look at how Mexican states consistently fail to prepare for the future and seem confounded by interest group politics, by a lack of technical expertise, by a failure to conceive of best practices that might leverage more out of finite water resources, and by archaic water infrastructures that are – admittedly – quite difficult to replace or upgrade. It is suggested that a Made-in-Mexico solution can be found, but that it will most likely reside in doing the following: setting priorities; creating multidisciplinary and multi-pronged solutions to local water issues; and perhaps developing local technologies that can aid in water reclamation, protection and security.
