Update: The Challenges of Water Stress in Mexico: Which States Could Face a Water Crisis in the Future? (Zelosos por Buenas Renovables)

In view of the water crisis that is being experienced globally in destinations such as Puerto Vallarta, which due to its touristic nature increase the use of the vital liquid in certain seasons of the year, at a social level specialists point out that conscious actions must be taken to make a reasonable use of such a valuable natural resource.

"If people and tourism are invited to take care of this water resource, because it has been depleted, therefore, we must be taking care of it for the following years because it is what we are going to entangle future generations," informed Rigoberto Velázquez, SEAPAL's engineer.

It is worth mentioning that the region of Puerto Vallarta is fortunately sheltered by the presence of several rivers that provide the resource.

"Here in Puerto Vallarta, we are extremely fortunate because eight rivers flow and at present it is being supplied with 43 sources of supply in total," indicated Rigoberto Velázquez, SEAPAL engineer.

At the time, the main water source, the radial well, was affected by the exploitation of stone material, but today, the water supply is sufficient for the region.

"It is a well that had been in decline in previous years due to the exploitation of stone materials and that produced 90 liters per second, fortunately it is producing 200 liters per second," said Rigoberto Velázquez, SEAPAL engineer.

It should be noted that for this low water season, social measures should be taken to care for water, and thus avoid any shortage.
