The Association of Water Users of Saltillo considered that the remunicipalisation of the drinking water operating system is necessary, but not only that, but also to promote the inclusion in local regulations of the human right to water, contemplated in the Mexican Constitution.
For its part, the company considered that it is premature to start talking about returning its operation to the municipality.
Members of that civil association urged that the concessionaire of the potable water and sanitation service in the city be “brought under control”.
They considered that the company has violated the human right to water, has incurred rate increases, has fallen into a lack of transparency, contradictions, hidden costs and has not been able to exceed 60 percent efficiency in distribution.
“The Aguas de Saltillo company is not complying with a constitutional provision that refers to the human right to water and which has been in place since 2012, how is it possible that, being that general provision in the Constitution, it has not landed precisely on the rules? local?”, questioned Salvador Ponce Ortiz.
Ponce Ortiz considered that another question to ask the different candidates is that the water system should be remunicipalised or the concession withdrawn.
Recognized that Agsal has improved the administration a bit, but at the cost of no savings in water or the precarious fight against leaks.
“There are many things to clarify with this company, I believe that the legal violations have been many and we must begin to put them on the waist and start taking citizen participation into account,” considered Gloria Tobón, who assured that they will be “behind the candidates “ to expose the situation to them.
