Quintana Roo to spend US$2.6mn on water conservation

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Mexico's Quintana Roo state plans to invest 30mn pesos (US$2.57mn) in the conservation and preservation of Tulum's water basin, according to a release.

A committee designed to deal with improved water management in the area was recently set up as part of the state's green policy, introduced by the new governor, Roberto Borge. The committee hopes to raise awareness about water use and to balance availability with demand.

The state environment agency is also working with national water authority Conagua to establish water reserves in the state, which will guarantee potable water for the communities between Isla Mujeres and Benito Juárez and Solidaridad and Tulum.
