BUREAU HIGHLIGHTS

The New Mexico Finance Authority and New Mexico Environment Department Drinking Water Bureau invite public comment on the State Fiscal Year 2016 Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan. Comments will be accepted through July 27, 2015.

If your water system is ready to assess and mitigate its risk for flooding, see the EPA's newly-released guide on FLOOD RESILIENCE: A BASIC GUIDE FOR WATER AND WASTEWATER UTILITIES.

The New Mexico Environment Department in partnership with the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and New Mexico Department of Health has created a SOURCE WATER PROTECTION ATLAS, which brings together hydrogeologic information that water systems can use to protect their water supply sources.
