Welcome to the Drinking Water Bureau 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, Drinking Water Bureau (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.

DWB has created a web page to inform customers and the public of the actions it is taking to ensure safe drinking water at AV Water's Morningstar and Harvest Gold water systems.
