10% of Guadalajara metro area lacks water, sewer

With more than 4.3 million people in the Guadalajara metropolitan area, and urban expansion that comes in fits and starts, some 10 percent of the population lack water and sewer service.

The municipal water provider, the Sistema Intermunicipal de Agua Potable y Alcantarillado, or SIAPA, says it’s committed to delivering these basic services to those more than 400,000 residents by June 2015.

About 75 percent of the currently unserved population would have been hooked up by the failed program Todos con Agua, which was suspended amid a corruption scandal in 2011.

The head of SIAPA, Aristeo Mejía Durán, said the municipalities of Guadalajara, Zapopan, Tlaquepaque and Tonala have also committed to putting the brakes on haphazard expansion of developments, as such growth makes it more difficult to provide basic services.
