Recommended article: ¿El fin del agua en la Ciudad de México?

In his article ¿El fin del agua en la Ciudad de México?, Alejandro de Coss traces the social roots of Mexico City’s water scarcity. These range from a crisis of governance to the depletion of natural resources under conditions of capitalism. He develops these ideas upon the example of the Lerma system, which nowadays contributes around 10% (some 4 m³ per second, and decreasing) to the water supply of the Federal District (now CDMX). De Coss has spoken to a host of workers of SACMEX, the public water utility and their accounts, along with the original argument, are what makes this article into a particularily good read.
