It is in the tension among the habit of distributing the water in common and the idea that the water can be privatized that the objectives of this article are defined. It analyzes the notion of the water as common good built by rural populations of Minas Gerais, investigating in which bases that conception is based on, and finally, analyzes the plasticity of local cultures when managing the water resources in community.
