Where and how New Mexico is going to get enough water to survive and thrive is an issue that’s here to stay! The New Mexico Desalination Association is continuing to step up to this challenge by offering the second of its New Water for New Mexico public information and discussion forums.
Landowners, elected representatives, environmental NGOs, farmers and ranchers, researchers, and public servants will all have the chance to meet on Thursday, October 26, 2023 — this time at the University of New Mexico’s Continuing Education Conference Center.
The New Water for New Mexico Forum will bring together water experts and interested parties to define and communicate the needs our state has for new water resources and to present ideas and solutions to effectively and economically access those resources.
There are three main topics for this year’s forum
- Texas vs. New Mexico water litigation & water supply augmentation
- Brackish water & desalination opportunities
- Project funding opportunities and potential projects
What: A forum describing New Mexico water supply issues and presenting ideas and solutions.
