In addition to reviewing binational water infrastructure program successes, the participants also discussed future planning for ongoing environmental and public health projects along the US-Mexico Border. To date, the program has resulted in nearly 24,000 homes with new drinking water service and over 100,000 homes with new wastewater collection service. It is estimated that approximately 7 million people will benefit from all of the completed projects.
