La ciudad de Merida, Yucatan obtiene su agua potable principalmente de tres campos de pozos localizados en los alrededores de la ciudad. Adicionalmente, existen pozos del sistema de agua potable dentro de la ciudad. Se ha reportado la presencia de plomo, cadmio y cromo excediendo el limite de la Norma de Agua Potable Mexicana en agua del sistema de agua potable. Los siguientes contaminantes organicos tambien han sido detectado en el agua subterranea de la porcion sur de la ciudad: TCA, PCE, TCE… Expand

Sources and distribution of organic matter along the Ring of Cenotes, Yucatan, Mexico: sterol markers and statistical approaches.
TLDR
To investigate the sources of organic matter in this aquifer, sediment samples were collected from cenotes and analysed using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, and good consistency was observed between the source assignment and the land use context and the season. Expand

Hydrogeologic Constraints on Yucat�n's Development
TLDR
It is concluded that any strategy for long-range land use in the study area should include establishment of a regional aquifermonitoring network forLong-term measurements of key hydrogeologic parameters, including precipitation, evapotranspiration, water table elevations, and water quality. Expand

Determination of flow characteristics in the aquifer of the Northwestern Peninsula of Yucatan, Mexico
Abstract Flow characteristics were studied in the Northwestern Peninsula of Yucatan, Mexico. The Yucatan aquifer is a mature karst system, influenced by the Ring of Cenotes (sinkholes). This zone ofExpand
