Mexico Pays Water Debt To Us By Transferring Ownership Of South Texas Water


Mexico is paying off its water debt to the United States by handing over ownership of water currently in two South Texas reservoirs. Governor Abbott announced Thursday that Mexico had agreed to take care of a five-year agreement with the U.S. by giving over ownership of water stored at the Amistad and Falcon International dams.

Mexico owed the U.S. water under a 1944 treaty that specifies how water from the Colorado River and the Rio Grande is divided between the two countries. The water will remain at the two dams until needed for farming and other uses along the Texas side of the Rio Grande.
