RODRIGUEZ-HERRERA, América; HERNANDEZ-RODRIGUEZ, Berenise  and  PALERM-VIQUEIRA, Jacinta. Irrigation systems in the Huamuxtitlán Ravine: tradition and present time. Tecnol. cienc. agua [online]. 2010, vol.1, n.4, pp.75-88. ISSN 2007-2422.

This article discusses the importance of using traditional technology in irrigation systems characterized by a vulnerable ecological environment, focusing on the description of its infrastructure: riparian protection or "fencing", inlets, and canals, with the intention of contributing to a reflection on its pertinence and of building a bridge to a necessary discussion on the exploration of options for development and sustainability from productive experiences with proven effectiveness and rooted in an ancient culture.

Keywords : irrigation; traditional technique; sustainability; fencing; inlets.
