Mexico's national water authority Conagua was founded in 1989 and is responsible for managing and protecting the country's water resources in order to ensure their sustainable use. Conagua is divided into three main operating segments: water management, basins organizations, and technical assistance. Conagua's objectives include promoting an integrated and sustainable water management in basins and aquifers; improving technical, administrative and financial development of the water sector; consolidating users and communities' participation in the use of water, and promoting that it has a proper use. It is also focused on preventing weather and hydrometeor risks and to take care of its effects; evaluating the climate change effects in the water cycle; and creating a helpful culture that obeys the Mexican water law. The Mexico City-based regulator is looking to execute projects that include rehabilitation of drainage, treatment plants, sewage systems and aqueducts.
