Water urbanization El Alto_couv

In this paper, we analyze the process of water urbanization in the periphery of El Alto, in the context of the urban sprawl growth; thus, the administration of the public drinking water company puts into practice and tension multiple paths, ranging from the requirement of certain administrative conditions, the dispute over political loyalties, the reaction to local pressures and mobilizations, to even the provision of water based on the economic efforts and community work of the residents themselves through the Obras con Participación Vecinal (OPV, Works with Neighborhood Participation) program. As a whole, these elements promote expressions and exercises of a particular corporate citizenship that materializes the access to water.
