Water scarcity in Mexico is a huge problem that is affecting more people every day. The importance for this
research is to present how has the lack of water in Mexico affected their habitants and how have the Mexican
Governors totally ignored this problem due to the lack of money, ideas and solutions. Mexico City has around 22
million inhabitants, which consume billions and billions of liter per day. People who live in segregated villages are
forced to walk over 10 kilometers in order to obtain âcleanâ water, even though that water they are consuming is full of
dangerous minerals due to the contamination in Mexico City. Although the water cleaning system in the country is
really advanced, the pipelines that are under the cities are really dirty, and they havenât been cleaned for more than 50
years. This is a big problem because if the water that is being transported is clean, and the pipelines are ...view middle of the document...
The data obtained for this research will be helpful because it explains how the water quality has been
decreased in the past decades, and how the government has done any kind of actions to solve this important problem.
The data analyzed is on the most precise information, due to the fact that this data is obtained and investigated by the
own government and mayoralty.
As it was mentioned, there are quite a lot of problems on Mexicoâs water quality. On this section it will be listed
the two major problems that Mexico has with water, and how these problems can be reduced or the main possible
solutions. The first problem is the quality of the water. Mexico City has the best cleaning process and the best purifying
machines, that provide really high quality water, but the main problem are the pipelines. Due to all the earthquakes
that there are throughout the year in Mexico City, the pipelines can break or can have a leak of contamination that is
underground, that leads to the contamination of all the water that is passing through the pipelines. The other problem
is the really expensive prices on water. The fees in order to get fresh water directly to you house are really expensive
due to the fact that Mexico City has a big demand on water, that has to supply the 22 Million of habitants. This leads to
the Water Commision to raise their prices so that they can have a revenue on the service they provide. These two main
problems lead to the scarcity of clean and fresh water, and that people who live in far villages that do not have access to
clean water, to walk long distances, under the sun and heat, in order to get clean water to their families. In order to
solve this problems, the government should start new campaigns to get water to the most poor and segregated villages,
that have problems to get access to water. There should be new cleaning systems, that are cheap and accessible to
people that do not have as much money. Also, pipelines should be restored so that the water that is passing through
them, does not get infected and so that it gets fresh and clean to the homes that is being provided to.
