Mexico offers multiple opportunities and growth areas in the environmental technologies and water sectors. In December 2012, all three major political parties in Mexico agreed to specific reforms and projects within the water sector. CONAGUA, Mexico's federal water commission, is responsible for potable water infrastructure, treatment, and distribution at the national level as well as the supervision of the municipal wastewater infrastructure in the country. CONAGUA'S investment budget for 2013-2018 is US$4 billion which includes: 1,154 new potable water treatment plants to be bid through national and international tenders; upgrading of municipal wastewater treatment plants; new desalination plants; water pipelines; and dams. The sector is expected to grow seven percent annually from 2013-2018.
