Watershare partner Victoria visits KWR and Oasen for paradigm shift in the design of water supply systems in Mexico

Last week Raúl Mejorada and Blanca Larios, top executives of Watershare partner Victoria visited KWR and water supply company Oasen to discuss opportunities to improve current design practices for water supply systems in Mexico. In many regions in Mexico these supply systems are fragmented and largely over dimensioned. This leads to unnecessary high costs and low levels of reliability. Also the water quality at the consumer’s tap is negatively affected.

Watershare contains innovative concepts and tools for cost-effective and reliable water distribution systems, flagged as ‘Self Cleaning Networks’. These tools are based on research and experiences from full scale implementation projects within the Watershare membership.

Victoria considers Self Cleaning Networks as the way to go forward for new systems as well as for systems under rehabilitation. For this purpose the Watershare partner has developed ambitious projects to implement the concept in a newly developed residential area near Mexico City and three medium sized cities in the country. Other projects under consideration include water infiltration  in coastal areas.
