[8:01] Inhabitants of the colony Monte Albán blocked access to the Direct Administration of Public Works and Water Services and Sewerage of the City of Oaxaca (Adosapaco) and closed the crossing on Crespo street and Allende, to require restore the water service was suspended them for over two months.

Miguel Angel Vazquez Carmona, treasurer of Life Committee Neighborhood (live together), reported that dependency is not received by sending payment receipts, including rate hikes, which they consider an abuse.
Adosapaco demanded to replace potable water service in this settlement, because more than two months do not receive liquid promptly charge them and their families are suffering the consequences. He said to try to resolve the conflict pipes to send them that people can collect water and cover your needs, but this measure is insufficient for the settlers. He replied that there are more than 5 000 inhabitants of this colony is one of the largest in the city, and should have some kind of priority it is that it generates more income to this agency also raised the price of quotas. He said they indicated that the two wells that supplied the area had collapsed, but they knew that new subdivisions were connected to the lines Sets by one of these wells, although it was exclusive to the colony.

"We want a quick response and demand the reinstatement of the Services so that it arrives by pipeline, but it is insufficient because there is no coordination with the Comviva of this colony," he said. He complained that despite not having the service, they still charge for providing receipts and send them without any discount, and they only occasionally lowered seven pesos, considered a joke. However, he said that the situation remains unchanged and have not had satisfactory answers to their demands even though they have acted properly and through legal channels to seek prompt attention. He said the despair and fell upon the settlers, so they decided to make this protest, because they do not know what else to do to address them.
In the absence Adosapaco care, said they are willing to go to the end, as this service is basic to any human settlement.

Our country has a real fresh water problem, in many areas the water shortage is critical. I would like to share this that will surely help in water conservation as well as our unemployed veterans:


They will hire vets to install low flush toilets. A Vet can have a well paying job and 9000 gallons of water per year will be saved! They can hire wounded worriors too.
