I.e., exposed, having a second line of water that will allow in the future to maintain the system without stopping operations and discontinue the provision.
In a statement, he said that it is precisely the individual operation of both lines of high pressure which will later allow the «K» piece that will interconnect both lines, without the need for paros to the Cutzamala.
He confirmed that at 6:45 in the afternoon on Tuesday launched the opening of the Cutzamala Protocol in order to restore the supply in block to the system of waters of the city of Mexico (SACMEX) and to the Commission the water of the State of Mexico (CAEM).
