Next Meeting:

The August 11, 2020 meeting of the Water Quality Control Commission meeting is canceled. The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) does not currently employ a staff administrator to service the Boards and Commissions administratively attached to the agency, although the position is currently being advertised. We encourage all qualified candidates to apply as soon as possible; this is New Mexico State Personnel Office Job ID #112638 (NMENV/OOTS #12147). We hope to have the position filled by the end of August at the latest.

This position is critical to servicing our Boards and Commissions, and NMED is not able to provide support for Board/Commission meetings with current staff. For more information about a particular case and upcoming meetings and hearings, please contact NMED at Public.Facilitation@state.nm.us or 505-827-2855, or visit www.env.nm.gov.

NMED looks forward to a busy fall assisting Boards and Commissions as they catch up on pending matters. Thank you for your patience.v
