Regional water users of Mexico's Pánuco river and sugar producers in the city of Pánuco, Veracruz state, have added their names to a list of groups seeking to block construction of the Monterrey VI pipeline, reported local newspaper Milenio.
Alfonso Arroyo Amezcua, who is representing the groups, cited the absence of transparency for the purposes of granting water concessions and licenses, as well as information provided by Mexico's water authority Conagua for the proposed 372km pipeline.
Arroyo, on behalf of his clients, said they will formally file a complaint, following meetings with the lower house and the Pánuco water basin council, the daily reported.
The project entails a 30-year public-private partnership to build and operate the pipeline, which will transport water from the Pánuco river basin, San Luis Potosí, to Nuevo León capital Monterrey.
