The urban landscape of the city of La Paz hides a large number of underground rivers but reveals dozens of springs on its hillside territories. These springs have multiple meanings, mainly for women, who make a collective and productive use of their waters, in such a way that any intervention in the landscape of springs has implications for their lives. This report socializes the results of the research on spring landscapes regarding collective washing of clothes and, at the same time, it challenges authorities, urban territories, and the academia to develop articulated actions for the approach1, sustainable use and safeguarding of these underground waters.
