The application of new technologies in terms of drinking water is an issue that is evaluated in conjunction with the National Water Commission (Conagua), he said in an interview for Millennium the general director of the Commission of Water, Sewerage and Intermunicipal Systems (Caasim) of Hidalgo Juan Evel Chávez Trovamala, since with this rapprochement with the federal authority guarantees more and better projects to meet the demand for water supply.
Among these projects, the state official highlighted, is the installation of rainwater harvesting systems in public spaces, as Mexico City (CDMX) already does in government buildings and public schools, since it is one of the programs that He offered them on behalf of Conagua to guarantee the supply of the vital liquid.
“We work together to analyze new technologies such as in CDMX, they already bring the rain harvesting program, they already offered it to us, we are going to support each other and we must be thankful that they are close, in the words of the Conagua it had several administrations that did not They approached them, now we are working hand in hand, introducing projects and learning from issues that have been successful in other organizations, working hand in hand in all government instances, we are going to continue seeking the benefit of Hidalgo society,” he said. .
Similarly, Chávez Trovamala added, It is necessary to implement specific actions in the entity to guarantee the supply of drinking waterthis through wastewater sanitation, since in this way the industry and municipal governments can use this treated liquid for some of their activities, which will reduce the consumption of drinking water by these sectors and will contribute to the service of the population in general.
“We must take care of the issue of sanitation, the future is treated water, we must bet not only in the state, in the country and the world to promote this issue so that the industry helps us occupy treated water, we have a success story, and within that industry that is going to use treated water, it generates savings in drinking water, so this topic will continue, we have already met with chambers of commerce and industrialists to talk with them about these actions, many of them seek to cooperate with us”, abounded.
The use of treated water, added the head of the caasimwill not only reflect savings in the vital liquid that is extracted from wells and aquifers, but also in the long run it is economically more profitable, not only because it can generate income for the operating agency, but also because of the cost-benefit to the population in general, but For this, rehabilitation and operation of 100 percent of the treatment plants that are in the state are required.
Chávez Tovamala recalled that this type of action, use of treated water, does not intend to generate more income for CAASIM“It is not about collecting for the sake of collecting, the important thing is to take care of the liquid, even if fewer resources are collected, but morally and thinking about future generations, it is more worth it than skimping on a few pesos.”
