Security in access to drinking water is widely related to the ability and efficiency of a municipality in terms of its distribution; in constitutional terms this level of government is the one responsible for the population to have the water necessary to satisfy its needs. In the case of Tepexi de Rodríguez, Puebla, this faculty has been permeated by the water requirements of the marble industry, which, in the opinion of the municipality’s residents, has caused a decrease in the amount of water available. Based on this, the objective of this study was to understand the way in which water is distributed in the municipal township and to identify the influence of the industry mentioned on the water’s scarcity for human consumption. Exploratory research was performed, applying 40 interviews, and in a second phase 89 questionnaires were applied to the families in the municipal township. It is concluded that the local government does not carry out an equitable distribution of water, favoring the marble industry, and also that there is no social participation in administering and planning for water resource management.
