FRAUSTO ORTEGA, Jesús. The Management and Culture of Water in Nuevo Laredo,Tamaulipas. Frontera norte [online]. 2015, vol.27, n.53, pp.89-114. ISSN 2594-0260.

This work examines the relationship between urban water management and the culture of water, assuming that there is a contradiction between these two aspects. It focuses on drinking-water service in Nuevo Laredo. The methodology employed in this study includes a look at drinking-water management indicators, a review of the literature on water culture, and interviews with local stakeholders about the population's awareness concerning water conservation. The paper finds that inefficient water management practices contradict policy objectives involving the culture of water.

Keywords : drinking water; culture of water; water management; northern Mexico border; Nuevo Laredo.
