240 lts/sec will be available before the fall in three new wells that are ready to be on line. electrical installations are still in process to make this now a reality.


Great work done by CEA management headed by Ivan Cruz.

This was going to be completed by last fall and never happened. I guess being completed by the fall of the next year is better than never....

Arent these new wells tapping into the same aquifer? I heard they werent far from the old wells.

Will agriculture be able to draw from them, too?

The majority, if not all, of Sonoma’s aquifers are either contaminated with saline intrusion or over exploited. Thus, you can drill a thousand wells and the water amount will be the same. Not enough for the 100 years some are claiming...

There will be more water for SC if there are more wells. Especially in a shallow aquifer that's constantly draining from higher elevations to the sea.

The main well field has always been upstream from Guaymas, Empalme, and Ortiz which also need the same water recharging the same aquifer downstream.

They will get less if SC gets more, but will have the desalinization plant to supply their shortfall.

I would rephrase that to say that that most of the aquifiers in the world near agricultural and population centers are over exploited.


And that is why the Sonoran Government is going to desalinization to help supply 150,000 residents in Guaymas and Empalme and also investing in more infrastructure for the 7,000 in SC and its future development.

90% of the farm ground west of Hermosillo has unusable salty soil due to irrigating with salty water. I noticed that this doesn't show on the map.

Mexico only treats a very small % of its residental drainage, but agricultural flood irrigation is still being employed with just about everything except grapes, so there that is a lot more waste full and should be addressed first, imo.
