According to an economist report, a third of the state of Baja California records severe drought conditions.
Economic Studies Center President Roberto Valero said during a recent meeting of Mexicali businessmen association Coparmex that shortage of water at Lake Mead, which has shown its lowest level in history, has company owners worried.
The economist said Baja California cannot depend any more exclusively on Colorado River water.
The association has called state authorities to implement effective strategies to conserve water and go beyond calling people to save water. Recently, the Mexican Section of the International Water and Boundary Commission announced a reduction of water allotted to Baja California due to Colorado River conditions.
