In this article they intend nine indicators whose selection was carried out in three stages, an exploratory stage directed to identify the impacts and affected environmental variables, a second stage where it was evaluated the representativeness of the variables about the statistical valuations; and the third stage confirmation the indicators selected starting from the application of the Process of Hierarchical Analysis (AHP), designed to solve complex situations where multiple approaches intervene; in all the cases the radius of consistency CR was valid, smaller than 10%. The resulting indicators are: chemical composition of the water, physical characteristics of the water, environmental services and ecological functions of the water, formation of alluvial deposits, modifications in natural section of the river, existence of species fish, existence and type of vegetation in the valley, existence of species of mollusks and uses of the land of the valley.
