GOMEZ-VALDEZ, Monserrat Iliana  and  PALERM-VIQUEIRA, Jacinta. Water Supplied by Truck in the Valley of Texcoco. Tecnol. cienc. agua [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.2, pp.133-148. ISSN 2007-2422.

This study included five municipalities in the Valley of Texcoco -Chiautla, Chiconcuac, Papalotla, Tepetlaoxtoc and Texcoco- in which the users of water supplied by truck (water tank cars, delivery cars and cistern trucks) were characterized and the number of users was calculated. Water supplied by trucks is crucial to a portion of the population, nevertheless knowledge is greatly lacking about this type of supply and the characteristics of the users. As will be described, the coverage of water by the supply network in the Valley of Texcoco is significantly deficient due to the increase in settlements. It is therefore common for many zones in the area to receive water from trucks. Nevertheless, the supply network's lack of coverage is not the only reason why water is supplied by trucks.
