Nine out of ten New Mexicans get their drinking water from groundwater —
yet oil and gas drilling, mining, nuclear weapons production, ill-considered development and lax industry practices threaten our state’s scarce resources.
Case: Ongoing We represent community groups in their effort to prevent approval for a 90,000+ person planned development proposed for the west side of Albuquerque – despite the fact that developers have failed to show where they will get their water and how they will construct this massive undertaking without cost to Bernalillo taxpayers.
Case: Closed The Martinez Administration’s NM Environment Department proposed numerous changes to the state’s surface water and groundwater quality regulations. Many of them would reduce public notice and hinder public participation.
