The study lays the bases to decrease the volume of residual water discharge into municipal collectors, which brings along many benefits of the environmental, social and economic kinds in the place where it is applied. A case study for the municipality of Metepec, State of Mexico, Mexico, will be approached; firstly, carrying out a diagnosis of wastewater discharge from buildings in the municipality to learn the volumes that are generated in order to run a study on the diminution of said residues into the collectors, hence decreasing the discharges allowed for at Federal level.
