Mexico mulls new wells for Huatulco resort city

Mexican tourism board Fonatur will kick off a series of 11 pre-investment studies in January to determine how many water wells need to be built to provide an additional 250l/s to Pacific coast vacation hub Huatulco.

Besides the location of the new wells, the studies will also define whether authorities need to relocate existing ones, according to a request for funds sent to the finance ministry SHCP, which approved 9.7mn pesos (US$500,000) for the initiative for next year. 

In the document, which can be seen in the ministry’s investment portfolio, Fonatur says the population and hotel occupation levels continue growing in the Oaxaca state city and water demand currently outstrips what can be provided.

“Distribution capacity is around 180l/s (5.6Mm3 per year). However, it is necessary to increase that to 250l/s (1.8Mm3 per year) to meet existing requirements,” the document reads. 

The board projects that the population of Huatulco will reach 41,000 by 2030, some 10,000 more than figure was estimated at in 2022.
