The urbanization that most of the municipalities in the State of Guanajuato are undergoing has made it imperative to generate strategies that allow an adequate administration and management of the drinking water service [1]. In this research, the water marginalization index for the State of Guanajuato is constructed using data from the 1990, 2000, 2010 and 2020 Population and Housing Censuses, which allowed for an analysis of the evolution of the effects of the policies adopted by the authorities to meet this challenge.

The results indicate a favorable evolution of supply, however, the increase in the percentage rate of the use of rivers or community wells as a source of water supply is noteworthy, going from 6.99 to 31.21 percent from 2010 to 2020, this result indicates an increasing overexploitation of the aquifers, which will cause complications in the future supply of water.
