Conagua authorities declare that the region enjoys a privileged status in respect to water supply…
MERIDA — Yucatan is privileged because of its water situation, compared to other places in the country, since water arrives without problem to every corner of the state.
Emilio Martínez de Velazco, regional director of the southeast of the National Council of Science and Technology, said that while three quarters of the planet is composed of water, only 1% of it is drinkable.
However, he stressed that Yucatán is privileged to have freshwater aquifers, such as cenotes and lagoons.
“The Yucatan Peninsula is within the small percentage of the country that has water in abundance, thanks to the fact that under its surface it has the hydrological reserve of all of Mexico, and one of the most important in the world,” he explained.
Within the framework of the 20th edition of the Science and Technology Fair, held at the facilities of the Siglo XXI Convention Center, the interviewee stressed that this fair is dedicated to water and its care, and in this way they send a message to society about the importance of this natural resource.
He added that although in Yucatan “we are privileged to have fresh water, we do not know for sure how polluted it may be, that is why the authorities carry out the corresponding investigations”.
Martínez de Velazco urged people to become aware of the importance of taking care of water, so that this is a resource that lasts in the next generations.
“We must seek to guarantee access to water for future generations, I want to reiterate to all, the commitment we have to continue supporting the initiatives that arise from Yucatan to reach the prosperous Mexico we all have,” he concluded.
