Preserving liquid assets

Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have partnered with Mexican experts to develop a sustainable water management strategy for Mexico City and its aquifer, which serves 20 million people.

The team members completed an assessment of injecting treated wastewater back into the aquifer and developed a set of integrated simulations of the water system for evaluating potential actions. Social and health implications, costs and stakeholder involvement also were evaluated. In an anticipated second phase, the team will help develop a pilot program for the aquifer-injection concept.
