Rehabilitation of the El Duraznillo Spring Feeder Line at Santa María la Alta - Municipality of Tlacotepec de Benito Juarez
  • Start year: 2012
  • Type: Policy/Strategies/Action Plans
  • Status: Completed

2.607 km of feeder lines from the El Duraznillo spring to
the indigenous village of Santa María la Alta were rehabilitated.
The community’s drinking water line is gravity
activated and serves some 7000 residents. The system
saves approximately USD $2300 monthly in electricity
and above all, mitigates annual CO2 emissions, making it
a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable
system. These actions constitute best practices that benefit
communities in the short-, medium- and long-term.

and environmentally sustainable, leading to carbon dioxide
emissions mitigation and enhanced long-term qualityof-
life.
