Is there ANY part of Mexico that isn't about short term gains over the long term welfare of a system? I can't think of one.

Has any one ever wondered why some areas of SC get water most of the time and other areas don't?  Shall we say that the more affluent areas (and I don't like that word affluent) such as Vista Marina, Puesta del Sol, Caracol Tourista and Pennisula, etc.  very seldom go with out water and if they do it's for a very short length of time.  The Ranchiitos has many Mexican families living in the area and maybe they CEA doesn't think they will do anything about it.  It is my understanding that the Mexican government must, by law, furnish water to it's people but they don't have to say how much and when.  I don't think Ranchitos has a storage tank as other areas have and evidently CEA doesn't want to build one for Ranchitos. All I can say is they better wake up because water is worth more than gold these days and they can not operate as they now do forever.

The Ranchitos is such a hodge-podge of pipes that even CEA doesnt fully understand how they operate.

But I can tell you that we havent been below half of a 5000 liter cistern in the last three weeks. We dont shower less, we arent watering much less. We do wait till water is near full (or even better, actually filling) to do laundry.

We have been getting reduced flows but we get water ALMOST every day. Not so with others just a couple blocks away.

I live in the Ranchitos and have not been out of water for years. It all depends on the goofy distribution system but not all of the Ranchitos has problems.

My observation is; short term thinking.... Whats for lunch!     Long term thinking..... Whats for Supper!
The future doesn't seem to exist here.

The overland pipe line that brought water from Novio, most recently.

post #23 describes it best! CEA for the most part was and is only responsible for the main line! from that main line developers have spliced off for their projects! from those splices others have spliced off, so on and so on! i would venture to say the first splices where probably inadequate for the the demand they where to deliver for! there was never a master plan for san carlos much less the water system!  i was here during jimena, touring greater san carlos to view the damage i witnessed the exposed plumbing for most of the areas of san carlos! i was amassed to see all of the 1" PVC piping trans-versing miles and miles for it distribution! so i believe there lies the problem!!we have problems now, wait till the new subvdivision projects are on line at the entrance of the royal, behind san carlos country club and the project for over 100 homes out by paradiso!

we are quick to blame CEA for this overwhelming infrastructural problem! when the blame probably should also be focused on "urbano" they issue the permits!
CEA provided the main lines and there should be mapping for those lines! from there if "urbano" are to issue permits for developments, it should be "urbano's" obligation to provide minimum and maximum requirements! any tapping into those permitted developments should take into account the minimum and maximum capacity usage.
was this ever done? we all know the answer!!
