14.5 Million MXN Invested to Clean Puerto Vallarta Ameca River

With the investment of 14.5 million pesos, the checkered flag was given to start the work, a collected effort between CONAGUA, State, and City officials.

The director of sanitation, Juan Gabriel Avalos Lemus, explained that the new construction will address an old problem with the pollution of the Ameca River.

The Ameca River is 230 km in length, it rises in the Bosque de la Primavera in Jalisco, 23 km to the west of state capital Guadalajara; flows through the city of Ameca; and then forms the boundary between Jalisco and Nayarit on its way to the Pacific Ocean, where it drains into the Bahía de Banderas near Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. Its main tributaries are the Ahuacatlán and Amatlán de Cañas.

    This is great news and good for the bay, but the integrity of all rivers depends on the watershed feeding it, the Mine outside of San Sebastian that feeds from sludge pond is significant threat until pressure to process the toxic soup held in sludge pond that slops over wall to arroyo is amended to a series of ponds with traps to collect toxic material to be disposed of properly, the Ameca will have threat just as Sinaloa has experienced with even graver consequences as more people and agriculture depend on Ameca, by greater attention to mine at top of watershed the better for the peoples health below.
