RUEDA-QUIROZ, Laura D.; BRUNETT-PEREZ, Luis; ESPINOSA-AYALA, Enrique  y  ARTEAGA-REYES, Tizbe T.. Water management in the family diary system in the sub-basin of Amecameca, Estado de México. agric. soc. desarro [online]. 2015, vol.12, n.2, pp.165-179. ISSN 1870-5472.

The objective of this study was to analyze water management in the Amecameca Sub-Basin family dairy system, in the State of México. The theoretic approach was derived from IWRM (Integrated Water Resources Management). The field work took place from September to December, 2012. The sample of producers was 22 production units. In terms of the social actors, six key informants were selected from various offices in the federal, state and municipal levels. The analysis was carried out through descriptive statistics. Results show that the average annual cost per water payment was $2920.00 Mexican pesos (including the municipal tap and tank trucks). The water comes from six wells and four ice-melt systems (streams). With regard to milk production, 6.6 l of water are required (including for consumption and cleaning services), in average, to produce one liter of milk. Therefore, the system is partially inefficient in terms of drinking water consumption (5.6 l of water per liter of milk), when compared to other results reported. In spite of this, the system generates a minimal hydric pressure (2.2 %) on the volume of water allotted in the area. The information obtained allows concluding that there is not a problem of scarcity in the volume of water assigned, but rather a social problem of distribution of the resoruce.
