After Five Weeks Without Water, Comcaac Community In Sonora Seeks Urgent Help – Mexico

Members of an Indigenous community in neighboring Sonora, Mexico, say they are experiencing a critical water shortage after weeks without reliable access.

Water scarcity is a long-standing and constant issue in Punta Chueca — one of two Comcaac towns on the Sea of Cortez. But the community has now gone five weeks without water from the town’s failing desalination plant.

Water trucks sent by the government or paid for by the community are insufficient and some families lack large drums needed to store water between deliveries, leaving many without […]

Spanish firm to build desalination plant in Los Cabos – Mexico

A desalination plant will be built in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, to solve a drinking water shortage.

Spanish infrastructure conglomerate Acciona will manage the project and invest €134.5 million (around US $165 million) in the public-private scheme, with construction expected to take 24 months.

The plant will benefit 464,000 residents, producing 250 liters of drinking water per second, equivalent to seven million cubic meters per year.

Mexico’s Baja California Sur state has modified the tender calendars for two public-private partnership contracts, worth an estimated 5.2bn pesos (US$252mn), that will be awarded this year.

The projects concern the 3.9bn-peso, Los Cabos desalination plant and the 1.3bn-peso integral improvement of Cabo San Lucas city’s water distribution system. 

The contracts for both projects were expected to be awarded on March 17 and 18, respectively, but a notification on procurement site Compranet late last week said the dates were changed.

Where’s the Water? – Mexico

I love San Miguel de Allende.  It’s a lovely town in Mexico, and anyone who wants romance in his or her life should come down here.  It’s  just turning June, and it’s starting to get hot from Sarasota to Dallas to Los Angeles, but not here. 

No, this is supposed to be the rainy season.  And May was supposed to be hot, but it wasn’t.  Yes, this would be a Mexican paradise, except for one thing.

We’re running out of water.  We […]

Mexican Region Gets First Desalination Plant for Agriculture Use in the Americas – Mexico

Weather conditions in San Q1uintin, a region in the northwestern Mexican state of Baja California, are good for growing crops year-round, but the lack of water in the area is forcing farmers to turn to innovative and environmentally friendly technologies, such as desalination, to deal with the problem.

The drought that affected San Quintin from 1985 to 2015 caused the amount of land under cultivation to fall from 28,000 hectares (69,135 acres) to 7,889 hectares (19,479 acres), a reduction of 72 percent.

Desalination plant brings relief to Ensenada residents struggling with limited water supply.- Mexico

Baja California’s first utility-scale desalination plant has launched operations, supplying 5.7 million gallons a day of converted seawater to municipal water users in the port of Ensenada.

The reverse-osmosis facility, which has the capacity to double in size, is seen as a critical piece of infrastructure for Ensenada, whose 390,000 residents have been almost entirely dependent on aquifers for their water supply.

Water plan urges preparation for dry times in New Mexico.

New Mexico’s supply of groundwater should be reserved for periods of drought, communities should have sharing agreements in place when supplies are short and alternatives such as desalination should be explored regardless of the cost.

The recommendations are part of the state’s draft water plan released late Monday. The public will have 30 days to comment on the lengthy document.

Updated every five years, the plan acknowledges the growing pressures of drought and climate change on New Mexico’s drinking and irrigation supplies.
