Save The Lake!
Red line is Carrizal River, Green Area is the lake and Blue line is the Grijalva River. (Sorry for the low quality picture :P )
So, build a canal to feed water on the lake from the red stream and build a canal to release water to the blue stream, you don't need pumps for the city(which is inside those 2 rivers and around the lake), making some calculations we can now what amount of water we have to let flow in the 2 streams so we can clean the lake and keep it beautiful for the sake of us all.
The following picture is from a part of the lake which constantly gets polluted, last time it got some sewage discharge and killed almost all fish in it, even maggots infested the lagoon, really disgusting.
This plant (Trascescandia ...) is consumed as a beverage here on Tabasco.
If you find some wild "Matali" cut about 100 grams of it(carefully, because for some persons is poisonous, not lethal, but can be itchy), wash it and put about half an ounce of lemon juice and 1 liter of water in a cup with the Matali, put it to fire and leave it there as long as it takes to get boiling it for about 5 minutes.
Cool it and use 1 part of it for 3 parts of water. Add some sugar too.
When I was a kid, the plant was toxic for me, I couldn't touch it, for I used to get some kind of allergic rash, but after boiling, I used to drink lots of Matali and I was completely fine. Is a very healthy drink!
