MONTES-HERNANDEZ, Roberto et al. The filtering galleries in the Upper Lerma River: uses and social managements. Econ. soc. territ [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.36, pp.455-485. ISSN 1405-8421.
The location and study of the social management of water of the filtering galleries in the State of Mexico has not been performed because the existence of this hydraulic system is ignored. In the present article the geo-referencing and description of the use and social management of water of the filtering galleries in the Upper Lerma are presented for the first time. On the basis of fieldwork, review of files and ethnography, we verify and describe the existence of said system in the region. The development of this work is part of a broader research called "Characterization of the use and social management of water of the filtering galleries in the State of Mexico" under the supervision of Tonatiuh Romero.
Keywords : localization; location; filtering gallery; technology; use and social management of water.
