Mexico's water and sanitation crisis

Water supply and sanitation in Mexico has experienced both great achievements and continued challenges. Over the last two decades, Mexico saw a significant nationwide increase in access to piped water supply and improved sanitation in both urban and rural areas.

The challenges include water scarcity in certain parts of the country; inadequate drinking water quality and wastewater treatment, and poor technical and commercial efficiency of most utilities. More than half of Mexican households with access to piped water receive services on an intermittent basis, particularly in smaller municipalities and poor areas.
