On 19 December 2017, Spanish private water player Acciona Agua and the municipality of Boca del Río, in the state of Veracruz, Mexico signed a 30-year water utility concession agreement for the company to manage the full water cycle for over 140,000 people.

The contract’s operation performance targets include a reduction of non-revenue water, which currently stands at over 50%. The clock is ticking on  Mexico’s 2014 national infrastructure plan. With federal elections coming on 1 July 2018, this concession’s performance will provide a useful reference.
