Bajadock: Could it be that politicians are making promises on projects that don’t exist? We reported on the Tecate-Valle de Guadalupe aquaduct in 2012. Ensenada has had rolling water outages through various neighborhoods in recent months. There seem to be daily press conferences from politicians making proclamations about solving Ensenada’s water and road problems.
Ensenada, Baja California, February 12. – There never was, nor is there a formal project to build the aqueduct Fungus-Valle de Guadalupe, said Eduardo Ledesma Romo, director of the National Water Commission (Conagua) in Baja California.
He said that in state offices Conagua, or that agency at national level and not at the Secretariat of Finance and Public-where Credit would have to be registered, there was a draft of the aqueduct, which for years has been handled as a solution to water supply to the port of Ensenada.
Moreover, he added, on the assumption that there intend to build that pipeline right now would not be feasible because water quotas theoretically correspond to Ensenada from Colorado River-are already being distributed in Tijuana and Mexicali.
Ledesma Romo said a review was made and state and federal agencies have no information that would have made a formal management to build that branch to bring white water to Ensenada.
The director of the entity Conagua said that unit works very timely way to address the problem of shortage of water exists in Ensenada and for this, different actions are taken.
One of them, he said, is to develop the project of bringing greywater from Tijuana to Valle de Guadalupe, which refuel groundwater in the region and would be used for agricultural activities.
To do this, Ledesma said Romo, already has a budget of seven million dollars for technical studies.
