Officials: Mexico Fulfilling Their Part of Water Treaty
WESLACO – Nearly two years into the latest water treaty and Mexico is on track, according to officials.
Water along the Rio Grande River is an important resource for both countries. The International Boundary and Water Commission are responsible for making sure Mexico fulfills their part of a 1944 treaty on the water’s use.
“Fortunately in the fall of 2017, Mexico became compliant with the minimum target delivery rate. Meaning they’ve delivered more than the minimum average, according to the treaty,” Lori Kuczmanski, the public affairs officer for International Boundary and Water Commission, said.
The treaty requires Mexico to deliver an average of 350,000-acre-feet of water each year, which averages more than 114 million gallons of water.
