Sabino Guerrero Guerrero, 15, glances down at the Endho Dam Reservoir, next to which he and his family live. Guerrero is angry. He is among many residents near the reservoir who suffer from skin rashes and respiratory difficulty from breathing noxious gases produced by the raw sewage. The lake attracted tourists and provided residents with abundant fish up until 1973, when authorities converted it into a holding tank for Mexico City’s sewage en route to farms in Hidalgo.
