New Mexico’s Groundwater Future

New Mexico's Groundwater Future

Our Groundwater FutureYou’re invited to learn about a new community-oriented groundwater monitoring program that aims to cover the state of New Mexico, especially engaging rural participants like farmers, ranchers, well owners and municipalities.

  • Recent years have seen water shortages in communities across New Mexico, from Magdalena to Questa to Wagon Mound to Clovis.
  • New Mexico currently lacks sufficient groundwater level measurements for many regions of the state—we have no way to map or track how much groundwater we have or the health of the aquifer.
  • The New Mexico Bureau of Geology & Mineral Resources has begun a project to create a statewide collaborative groundwater monitoring network, with the Museum of Natural History and Science as one of many monitoring locations and an important educational outlet.

Celebrate the beginning of this essential collaborative project. Come learn more about groundwater in New Mexico, and try out one of our new well monitoring stations!
