Deputy Wendy González, a member of the National Action Party (PAN) and president of the Commission on Integrated Water Management, led a working meeting titled “Toward the construction of a water agenda,” where she discussed the creation of a law that requires having a more democratic and transparent water system and preserving all the systems and subsystems which feed it.The water systems’ cycles, and the processes of harvest and storage of rain water should be improved, said González. More resources should be implemented to water treatment and storage, in order to make the resource less scarce and more accesible to the population, she added.Eugenio Gómez Reyes, a researcher at the Autonomous Metropolitan University (UAM), urged authorities to establish regulations for the water system and keep an eye on the changes of concessions. He also proposed that all public buildings have a mechanism for collecting and saving water.They requested that the Water Law of Mexico City should specify the quality of water to users and how resources are being invested.
