Summary That Lima's water system was in near-crisis was not enough to bring about radical change. Partial reforms to reduce many of the city's worst problems were carried out under public management. But a quarter of Lima's citizens still had no access to water or sewerage connections, extended service interruptions were common and more than a third of the scarce water supply was wasted. Why did the push for privatized water and sanitation fall?
