Environment Department
Drinking Water Bureau



Welcome to the Drinking Water Bureau (DWB) of the New Mexico Environment Department.

Our mission is to preserve, protect and improve New Mexico's drinking water quality for present and future generations.

In support of this mission, DWB regulates water quality at public water systems in New Mexico.  A public water system is any water system that serves at least 15 service connections or 25 individuals at least 60 days out of the year.

DWB ensures public water systems provide drinking water that meets all regulations by:

  • Overseeing water system compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act and New Mexico drinking water regulations
  • Providing technical, managerial and financial assistance to water systems

To get a list of DWB employees statewide, go to the Contact Us page.

To get information about any New Mexico public water system, go to the Drinking Water Watch.
