Country Overview

1.1.1.WATER RESOURCES Mexico's internal renewable water resources per capita is 4,016m3 (141,800 cu ft), which is below the average in the Central American and the Caribbean region of 6,645m3 (234,700 cu ft). A volume of 396km3 (95 cu mi) of water per year flows through Mexico's rivers, including imports from other countries and excluding exports. A total of 65 per cent of this surface runoff occurs in seven rivers: Grijalva, Usumacinta, Papaloapan, Coatzacoalcos, Balsas, Panuco, Santiago and Tonala, whose total watershed area represents 22 per cent of the country's total land area. The Balsas and Santiago rivers empty into the Pacific Ocean, while the other five empty into the Gulf of Mexico. The historical mean annual precipitation (1941-2004) is 773mm (30.4 in), with 77 per cent of all precipitation accruing between June and October. A little over 70 per cent of rainwater in Mexico is evapotranspirated and returns to the atmosphere. The rest runs off rivers and streams or infiltrates into the subsoil and recharges groundwater. Mexico shares three watersheds (Colorado, Bravo and Tijuana) with the United States of America (US), four with Guatemala (Grijalva, Usumacintam Suchiate, Coatan and Candelaria) and one with Belize and Guatemala (Rio Hondo). The waters are shared with the US in accordance with the stipulations included in the Treaty on the Utilization of the Waters of the Colorado, Tijuana and Rio Grande Rivers, signed in 1944. Groundwater accounts for 64 per cent of the volume of public water supply, 33 per cent of all water used for agriculture and livestock, and 24 per cent of water utilized by self-supplied industry. There are 653 groundwater aquifers in Mexico. The National Water Commission (CONAGUA) estimates the total amount of groundwater recharge to be around 77km3 (18 cu mi) per year, 36.4 per cent of which (around 28km3/6.7 cu mi per year) are actually used. This average rate does not fully represent the situation of the arid region, where a negative balance is threatening the sustainable use of groundwater resources. Groundwater is a key water supplier for several users in the arid region or in some cities where groundwater is most of the time the sole water resource available. About 71 per cent of the groundwater is used for agriculture, 20 per cent for water urban supply and 3 per cent for domestic and animal use.

1.1.2.WATER USE In 1998, domestic consumption accounted for 17 per cent of surface water withdrawals in Mexico. During the past decade, the Mexican water supply and sanitation sector made major strides in service coverage. In urban areas almost 100 per cent of the population is estimated to have access to improved water supply and 91 per cent to adequate sanitation. In rural areas, the respective shares are 87 per cent for water and 41 per cent for sanitation. Coverage levels are particularly low in the southern regions. In 1998, agriculture accounted for 78 per cent of surface water withdrawals in Mexico. A total of 62,000km2 (15.3 million acres) have an irrigation infrastructure (22.9 per cent of the total cultivated area), 55,000km2 (13.6 million acres) of which are actually irrigated. Ineffective irrigation has generated salinization and drainage problems in 3,841.63km2 (949,290 acres) of a total irrigated area of 62,560km2 (15,460,000 acres). The electricity sector in Mexico relies heavily on thermal sources (74 per cent of total installed capacity), followed by hydropower generation (22 per cent). The largest hydro plant in Mexico is the 2,300 MW Manuel Moreno Torres in Chicoasén, Chiapas. This is the world’s fourth most productive hydroelectric plant. Brazil also has the largest hydroelectric power plant in operation in the world, the Itaipú Dam, which was built between 1975 and 1991 in a joint development on the Paraná River. Its 18 generating units add up to a total production capacity of 12,600MW (megawatts) and a reliable output of 75 million MWh a year, providing 25 per cent of the energy supply in Brazil and 78 per cent of that in Paraguay (in 1995).

1.2.WATER QUALITY, ECOSYSTEMS AND HUMAN HEALTH Major environmental problems are scarcity of hazardous waste disposal facilities; rural to urban migration; natural fresh water resources which are scarce and polluted in the north, inaccessible and poor quality in the centre and extreme southeast; raw sewage and industrial effluents polluting rivers in urban areas; deforestation; widespread erosion; desertification; deteriorating agricultural lands; serious air and water pollution in the national capital and urban centres along the US-Mexico border; and land subsidence in the Valle de Mexico caused by groundwater depletion. Note: the government considers the lack of clean water and deforestation national security issues. According to the Water Quality Index, 96 per cent of Mexico's surface water bodies have different levels of pollution. The OECD estimates the economic cost of water pollution in Mexico at US$6 billion per year. The problem is most serious in the Valle de Mexico region where 100 per cent of the water bodies have different levels of contamination, 18 per cent of which are highly polluted. Low water quality is due to untreated discharge of industrial effluents and municipal wastewater into rivers and lakes, solid waste deposits along river banks, uncontrolled seepage from unsanitary landfills, and non-point pollution mainly from agricultural production. CONAGUA has also detected infiltration of untreated municipal wastewater in eight aquifers, iron and manganese in two, and arsenic in one in the Lagunera region. In overexploited aquifers, Country Overview - Mexico contamination tends to worsen over time as the groundwater reservoir is depleted. This is the case in the Lagunera region, where a concentration of 0.09 to 0.59 mg/L of arsenic is found in drinking water, above the permissible level of 0.05 mg/L. In addition information regarding water quality, available from the Public Water Rights and Registry, is scarce and often unreliable.
