History of Site and Related Water Issues:
Xochimilco’s Lake is one of the most important lakes in the Center of the Mexican Republic because it supplies water to thousands of families in the surrounding areas. Unfortunately lately the lake has been reduced to a couple of waterways. Each year the possibility of its disappearance rises not only for the need of potable water but because its being polluted by touristic and daily activities.
The importance of the lake is not only practical. This lake is also a symbol of Mexican Culture since prehispanic times where a lot of activities and business were developed.
“El Lago de Xochimilco” is an amazing example of the syncretism, creativity and community of Mexican Culture.
If the lake disapearse it will affect thousands of families that depend on it (because of the water, turistic activities and commerce) and furthermore it will take with him the history and identity of a lot of Mexicans.
