Marina del Pilar promotes strategies to ensure water supply in Baja California

The current administration has launched several projects to strengthen the supply, distribution, and reuse of this vital liquid

Through the search of new sources, institutional agreements with Watering District 014, an effective treatment of water to mainly benefit homes, among other actions, the governor of Baja California, Marina del Pilar Ávila Olmeda revealed that the state government launched a series of strategies and public policies to ensure there is enough water supply for the Baja Californian population.

The state governor pointed out that, to fight the hydric stress that affects Baja California and other regions in the country, the State Hydric Program (PEH) was launched. The goal of this program, with 58 projects, is to guarantee and have a better supply, distribution, utilization, and reuse of water, not only in Tijuana, which is the municipality where water is most used, but in the entire state.

She gave as an example high-impact water reuse projects such as the Arturo Herrera-La Morita system in Tijuana, El Naranjo plant in Ensenada, and Las Arenitas in Mexicali.

In addition, the Secretary for the Management, Treatment, and Protection of Water of Baja California, Víctor Daniel Amador Barragán, revealed that the PEH contemplates projects whose goals are to use new sources of water supply.

"On the other hand, in coordination with Watering District 014, we signed an agreement in which we guaranteed water supply for the entire year for the coastal area, mainly in the municipalities of Tijuana, Tecate, and Playas de Rosarito," the official said.

Amador Barragán highlighted the collaboration between the Mexican IBWC, the American IBWC, CONAGUA, and the different users of the Colorado River watershed to take the necessary and preventive measures to guarantee the conservation and protection of storage levels for the Colorado River dam, specifically Mead Lake. These measures can be found on the IBWC acts 319, 323, and 330 which have provided positive results and, as we are users of this watershed, they are also in our best interest.

"The government of Baja California focuses not only on short-term solutions, but also focuses on projects and actions to supply water in the short, medium, and long term and guarantee the right to water to present and future generations," the head of SEPROA stated.
