Hydrological and hydraulic studies to analyse the main drainage system of the valley of Mexico

H. L. Cisneros-Iturbe & R. Dom\303\255nguez-Mora
ABSTRACT The present work deals with the mathematical simulations of the main drainage system of Mexico City, which serves an urban area of 20 million people on a surface of about 2500 km2. This system is composed by retention dams, surface channels, deep and semi-deep tunnels, pumping stations and retention lakes. Due to the aquifer\342\200\231s overexploitation and, its consequents, soil sink problems, the surface drainage channels have significantly diminished their conducting capacity. This has result...
