Cali is known as the "city of seven rivers": six rivers stream from the Andean mountains through the City before ending up in the Cauca; the seventh marks the municipal boundary of Cali. Despite being so well-endowed with water resources, the city faces a number of serious water management challenges. Coverage of water supply services is nearly universal, at 97%. The Cauca is the main source of this water, directly supplying 77% of Cali’s approximately two million inhabitants. The remainder is taken from intakes on the other rivers. [authors abstract]
