Abstract

Each day millions of urban and rural poor around the world are forced to consume and bathe in water that contains high levels of bacteria and a vast number of commercial and industrial contaminates. Water resources have been considered endless and their exploitation a god-given right. This study focuses on the extent of the problem and the development of a step-by-step procedure for establishing a sustainable water-management plan for the Rio Yaque del Norte watershed.
