La participación privada en la provisióndel servicio público de agua potable: El caso de cinco municipios de Antioquia


  • David Tobón Orozco
  • Germán Darío Valencia


Muchos municipios colombianos, a pesar de tener una enorme riqueza hídrica, enfrentan graves problemas relacionados con el suministro de agua. La escasa cobertura, la limitada continuidad, la baja calidad del líquido, la cultura del no pago de los usuarios y la poca inversión en ampliación de los sistemas de acueducto no son situaciones nuevas. A lo largo de su historia, el servicio público de agua potable en Colombia ha presentado diversos problemas, que se han tratado de resolver en su momento (atendiendo a las necesidades más urgentes), pero que no han podido solucionarse del todo e incluso, en algunos casos, se han agravado
