Mexico City, home to an inefficient and inconvenient water delivery system, struggles to meet the pressing demands of its 22 million residents. Some residents have turned to harvesting rainwater, which has its own set of limitations. Special correspondent Fred de Sam Lazaro reports on the barriers that keep residents from clean water.
More than two million people have been affected by water shortages across Mexico’s capital. Ageing infrastructure and a booming population are forcing people to live along the hillsides around Mexico City as they are dependent on water that is driven in on trucks. There are also fears of more taps running dry as the hottest time of the year approaches.

Mexico city is sinking because people are thirsty. The city has sunk dozens of feet in the last 60 years because 70 percent of the water people rely on is extracted from the aquifer below. This has caused buildings to lean and sink into the ground at a rate of up to one foot a year in the most extreme places. Fusion visited three historical sites in the city to learn more.
Every major country faces the challenge of providing safe, drinkable water to its cities. This struggle is greatly magnified in Mexico, home to one of the world's most vast megacities. CGTN's Franc Contreras reports from Mexico City.

Tenochtitlan was a city-state located on an island in Lake Texcoco in the Valley of Mexico. Founded in 1325, it became the seat of the growing Aztec Empire in the 15th century, until it was captured by the Spanish in 1521. Today the ruins of Tenochtitlan are located in the central part of Mexico City.

In Mexico City, the most populated capital in the two Americas, vast swathes of the population have no direct access to water in their homes. Mexico's president Enrique Pena Nieto has described the problem as a national priority. The government is now working with civil engineers to solve the problem for a city which expanded far faster than urban planning could keep up with.
At lest hundreds of thousands of residents of Mexico City, the capital of Mexico, are failing to receive a permanent water supply. It is a puzzling problem in a city the Aztecs built on five lakes and which consequently suffers annual flooding. Some analysts are saying that it is an example of the stark divide between rich and poor in the country. Authorities are promising changes to deal with the long-term problem, but soultions have not yet been seen. Al Jazeera's Rhodri Davies reports (20 April, 2010).

Mexico City, Parched and Sinking, Faces a Water Crisis MEXICO CITY — On bad days, you can smell the stench from a mile away, drifting over a nowhere sprawl of highways and office parks. When the Grand Canal was completed, at the end of the 1800s, it was Mexico City’s Brooklyn Bridge, a major feat of engineering and a symbol of civic pride: 29 miles long, with the ability to move tens of thousands of gallons of wastewater per second. It promised to solve the flooding and sewage problems that had plagued the city for centuries. Only it didn’t, pretty much from the start. The canal was based on gravity. And Mexico City, a mile and a half above sea level, was sinking, collapsing in on itself. It still is, faster and faster, and the canal is just one victim of what has become a vicious cycle...
This abandoned water park in Mexico City is one of the most requested locations I visit here in Mexico. I teamed up with my urbex friends Exploring with Josh and Exploring with Cody, and we headed to Bosque Chapultepec, a park (more like a forest) in the heart of CDMX to vlog the adventure together. This abandoned theme park has a dark history, and we wanted to learn more about it. It doesn’t look like it, but Atlantis was recently closed. It’s been less than 10 years since it shut it’s doors, yet it looks like a war zone. Being in the middle of such a big city, there have been lots of people come to do graffiti and explore, how it became so thrashed, I have no idea. It looks like it was half demolished. It was good to see the waterslides where still there, as well as some resemblance of ...
