Monterrey, the capital city of Nuevo Leon state in Mexico, faces a number of challenges. With the current population of almost five million people, the city has had to develop new sources of water and now relies on surface water for about 60 percent of its water supply.

Leakages, and frequent bursts in distribution lines continue to be a problem.
