Water Quality & Supply

Jump to Bills ↓

In the desert, more than most places, we are constantly reminded that without a clean, sustainable supply of water, we could not survive. The challenge of meeting the growing demands for water with the same limited supply, and how we meet that challenge, is likely to define the future of our Land of Enchantment.

Water Quality: given our state’s water scarcity problems, any proposed legislation that may impact the quality of our surface or groundwater resources must be carefully evaluated. All such measures will be included in this category.

Water Supply: a broad range of issues — including agriculture, industry, energy production, and land use/growth policies — have the potential to dramatically impact the sustainability of our water. Water quantity includes any proposed legislation that could affect the quantity or distribution of our water resources.
