The State Water Commission of Mexico (CAEM) restored 100 percent of the pipelines sending water to the 13 municipalities that were affected by the Cutzamala system failure.

When a 99 inch supply pipe ruptured, over 30 homes in the area of San Carlos Autopan suffered from the flooding, also affecting 13 municipalities and 14 of Mexico City’s boroughs, where drinking water supplies may have been disrupted.

Since Sunday, residents of some areas of 13 municipalities of the Valley of Mexico and Toluca area received deliveries by tanker trucks, said Enrique Suárez Pacheco, general manager of operations and emergency response of the CAEM.

On Monday, 120 trips were made to deliver together 1,300,000 liters of water for free.

The delivery operation continues Thursday to attend especially to the areas of Ecatepec and Nezahualcóyotl, which are the last to receive water while the supply tanks at Cutzamala are filled.

Suárez Pacheco highlighted the support that municipal water utilities have provided to alleviate the water shortage caused by the Line 1 failure, which has since been repaired by the National Water Commission.

Suárez Pacheco said late Wednesday night that 100 percent of the drinking water supply from the Cutzamala system had been restored, and 800,000 homes on Thursday will find their water supply restored.
