Official Closure of the Municipal Dump - Municipality of Cuatro Ciénagas de Carranza
  • Start year: 2012
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status:

Municipal authorities formally closed its open-air garbage
dump, operating in a natural reserve. The closure of the facility
that had received community refuse for four decades
was essential now that the city has a sanitary landfill located
eight km from the city. Cuatro Ciénegas is one of the
first communities in Coahuila State that has a landfill that
meets all relevant specifications, a significant advance toward
achieving “clean municipality” status. Citizens were
informed that sanctions and fines will be assessed to halt
dumping at the closed facility.

Cuatro Ciénegas Valley Sustainable Water Use Project - Municipality of Cuatro Ciénagas de Carranza
  • Start year: 2017
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status:

The project currently enjoys 90% completion of its technical
and equipment upgrade phase, featuring central pivot, side
roll and semi-portable irrigation systems at watering units
whose source are springs from which water reaches fields
via unimproved or concrete canals which in both cases led
to transmission loss of up to 50% due to leaks and evaporation.
Canal intubation is currently underway at the La Becerra,
El Venado, Sta. Tecla and Tío Julio irrigation units and
will prevent such losses. Most importantly, the water saved
through these actions will be used for ecological purposes
through a recuperation of Cuatro Ciénegas Valley wetlands,
a natural habitat for the region’s endemic species.

Coahuila State Commission on Water and Sanitary Services Agreement - Municipality of Cuatro Ciénagas de Carranza
  • Start year: 2017
  • Type: Policy/Strategies/Action Plans
  • Status:

Given that the cost of waste water treatment plant construction
is somewhat elevated and that operational costs
imply a financial burden that municipalities sometimes cannot
bear, the local government entered into an agreement
with the Coahuila State Commission on Water and Sanitary
Services in order to achieve compliance with federal water
regulations governing wastewater treatment. The agreement
obliges federal, state and local governments as well as
the private sector to comply with the law and additionally
benefits citizens via sustainable, enhanced water quality
