A few days ago, the parliamentary factions of the Green Ecologist Party of Mexico (PVEM) and the Labor Party (PT), in addition to Lidia Nallely Vargas, Cuauhtli Bandullo, María Claudia Tristán Alvarado, Liliano Guadalupe Flores and Yolanda Cepeda presented the initiative to disappear to the Metropolitan Intermunicipal Organization for Drinking Water, Sewage, Sanitation and Services (Interapas).

Given this, Fernando Díaz Barriga, doctor in Molecular Biology and representative of the University Water Group of the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí (UASLP), declared that the disintegration of Interapas will not guarantee the water supply for homes located in the state capital, Soledad de Graciano Sánchez and Cerro de San Pedro.

The representative of the University Water Group of the UASLP explained that in any case A water operating body for the metropolitan area would have to be createdsince San Luis Potosí, Soledad de Graciano Sánchez, Cerro de San Pedro, Villa de Reyes and Villa de Pozos (in case of its formation as municipality 59 of the entity) They share the same aquifer: “We want to solve the problem with four different water administrations and with the same aquifer.”

Díaz Barriga assured that the creation of new operating organizations will not solve the drought problem, since These do not invent water or cause rains in the metropolitan area of ​​San Luis Potosí.


The doctor in molecular biology said he was unaware of the economic part of Interapas, however he argued that the way in which it was responsible for water management was correct. “It regulated growth in Soledad and San Luis Potosí. The wonderful thing would be the other way around, if Zaragoza and Villa de Reyes were included. Management has to be metropolitan.”

Díaz Barriga revealed that in reality a Metropolitan Water Plan would have to be created, and based on that, carry out a water supply program which will have to be based on human rights, to guarantee water first for citizens, then for industries and finally for agriculture.

The scientist from the highest house of studies in Potosí indicated that Legislators have little vision to solve long-term problems:

“It seems that they are motivated to go down in history, that people say that in how many years they did this or that, they have very short visions, when the vision would have to be in the next 30 or 60 years, to guarantee that babies who have just been born can have water.”
