The general balance of the review of some proposals related to the analysis of the hydrosocial configuration suggests that they draw from space production theory, given that it is a historical process by which water is appropriated through the exercise of power, the construction of infrastructure, and the dissemination of legitimating discourses, among other mechanisms. From this perspective, water and society establish a dialectic relationship in which they influence each other. Although the analysis tends to use indistinctly categories such as: territory, landscape or space, it can be argued that they are not synonymous. This assertion can be examined by observing how these categories are constituted during the process of spatial production, which can provide the basis for the construction of a concept that may allow a thorough analysis of the Hydrosocial Configuration.
