Water resources for 11 million people

Lake Chapala is Mexico’s largest fresh water lake, with a maximum of approximately 8,000 million cubic meters. The Mexican project partners – Fundacion Cuenca Lerma Lago Chappla and Sociedad Amigos del Lago de Chapala – have worked out an action plan to save the polluted lake and, thus, the water resources for 11 million people who live in the catchment area.

The Living Lakes network, supported by Sika, is striving for the preservation of Lake Chapala as drinking water reservoir, the protection of migrant and breeding birds, the designation of Lake Chapala area as Ramsar reserve.
