We are working on some new and exciting things for the consumers of Rural Water in New Mexico!

First, we are looking for stories of how NMRWA technical support or paid services has helped your system! Please send stories in a message to the page! We will be posting some of these items to this page and on our website and possibly to news service throughout the state and online!
Don't worry, we have some volunteer editors to help with the actual released copy if you are not the world's best writer!

Second, we will be having an essay contest about how rural water makes life better! This will be open to any person between the ages of 16-18 that has not started college full time, receives their drinking water from a member entity of the New Mexico Rural Water Association, and submits the winning entry. We will have more details out and final rules for the first Annual Agua es Vida essay contest by mid September 2019. Entries will be due by February 1st. Judges will be announced before the end of the 2019. Prizes will be announced in September and will include cash prizes for the top two entries. Awards will be announced at our annual conference in Albuquerque NM in April 2020.

Since we are now limited to what's available for free training. Is there any place to take online training to meet our training credits for recertifications? I found the one course on the ED site, but that's it.
Merry Christmas to all my friends at NMRWA!
Only 28 days until #WaterPro2018 and there are a few exhibit spaces remaining. Don't miss your chance to connect with rural water officials and utilities from across the nation

Thank you to the Best Water in NM Taste Test judges. TOUGH duty.
Water Restriction NOW! The Pacific ocean is still cooler than normal (La Nina) there will not be any, really significant, snow this winter because it requires at least 3 months to warm up a mass that large. A wet May and June is extremely unlikely and in any case, could never make up for this hydrologic shortfall. We need to save this water for firefighting, domestic and critical agricultural uses. If alfalfa farmers were told, now that we will not be allowed to water more than 25% of the fields they normally irrigate they could save same some $$ by not planting, what, would likely turn out to be a marginal crop anyways. When the moisture returns and restrictions are lifted, they could plant and try to get a couple of cuttings perhaps. Direct food crops like livestock, corn, chile, fruit, and nuts should receive a reduced allotment but have priority. The oil business should be limited to only recycled water until the crisis passes. Dairies that provide mostly to the local market would get most of their allotment. Big commercial dairy operations that use an intense amount of water would be cut back even more. Domestic users should go under high-level restrictions with heavily terraced pricing and a major waste enforcement effort. We are obviously seeing more extreme drought events. We need to anticipate and adapt.
