Resumen

DURAN, Gustavo. Agua y pobreza en Santiago de Chile: Morfología de la inequidad en la distribución del consumo domiciliario de agua potable. EURE (Santiago) [online]. 2015, vol.41, n.124, pp.225-246. ISSN 0250-7161.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0250-71612015000400011.

Based on the story of the relationship between water and poverty in Santiago de Chile, the "access" as an indicator has experienced, for urban studies, a kind of wear and tear, and today does not represent a significant data to measure the inequality in this urban society. On the other hand, "consumption"stands out as an indicator with a greater capacity to reveal the circumstances of life of the poor people in that city, because even if it offers integration possibilities in terms of physical network access system, it excludes them by market mechanisms, such as a system that is permanently increasing fares and has no relation to family income. This contraction of domestic consumption of drinking water that has been recorded since the privatization of the service is produced in the context of a clear process of "commodification" (Winpenny, 1994, p.110) of a good, such as water in the city.

Palabras clave : poverty; urban services; consumption.
