The NM Environment Department (NMED), Ground Water Quality Bureau (GWQB) conducts free testing through a grant from the EPA, in conjunction with the NM Department of Health (NMDOH), to provide data about domestic wells. Approximately, eight water fairs or public outreach events are held each a year in communities throughout New Mexico. Each water fair event includes free testing of water samples from private domestic wells. Additionally, domestic well owners have the opportunity to interact with NMED and NMDOH staff to learn more about ground water quality issues and how they can help preserve or improve water quality.
