The AguaVida Network Bulletin


San Miguel de Allende and its surrounding communities are running out of water and the water that we do have is often contaminated with arsenic and fluoride. This urgent situation requires broad community participation in the search for solutions. The AguaVida Bulletin seeks to contribute to an informed community and collaborative efforts to confront this crisis. We welcome article submissions and suggestions. You can reach us at
