Kit foxes play an important role in ecosystems. As kit foxes move around, their old dens are taken over by other animals.

If you are lucky, you’ll catch a glimpse of these slim but resilient animals. The Paso del Norte Trail is an ideal environment to spot animals and access nature.

Cleansing wipes are great, but did you know that they can cause clogs? Even “flushable” wipes don’t break down like toilet paper. They can get stuck in your home plumbing or cause a clog in our wastewater system.

Our Story

El Paso is fortunate to have three sources of water – the Rio Grande and two aquifers. Decades ago, El Paso Water had the foresight to begin exploring and pursuing innovative water supply options – reclamation and reuse, conservation and education, and desalination. Today, we are considered an international leader in these areas.

As a steward of one of our most important resources, El Paso Water is committed to meeting the community's present and future water demands. El Paso Water proudly supplies 97 percent of all water in El Paso County.

El Paso Water is dedicated to providing the highest quality water possible to our customers. Additionally, we are dedicated to continually improving public safety throughout the city with our stormwater system.

We are El Paso Water, and we are working for you!

Big water news ‼️
El Paso needs better stormwater drainage. That's a fact.

That's why I'm proud to have secured federal funding that will help fund an El Paso Water basin in the far east that will hold 11 billion gallons of water after heavy rains.

Engineers expect this to help ease flooding in the area, including the flooding on I-10. READ MORE: http://bit.ly/3XNs7nD

Special thanks to El Paso Water and City of New Bedford Public Facilities for sharing these tales and photos.
On Monday Oct. 17, El Paso Water will have a temporary overnight water shut-off in parts of Northwest El Paso. The shut-off will begin at approximately 8 p.m. Oct. 17 and will last to 6 a.m. Oct. 18. Affected customers will have no water service or may experience low water pressure during this time. Residents living in High Ridge, Bear Ridge and Chaparral Park North will be impacted.
El Paso Water is setting the bar for implementing water reuse projects to achieve sustainability and modernize our nation’s infrastructure!
At a news conference last week, El Paso Water was recognized as an international water reuse leader with the announcement of $20 million in Bureau of Reclamation funding for its innovative facility, the Advanced Water Purification Facility, which will be one of the first direct-to-distribution potable reuse projects of its kind. Expected to produce up to 10 million gallons per day, the facility is considered a game changer in the nation’s efforts to secure safe and reliable water supplies for ratepayers throughout the West and nationwide.

Carollo assisted El Paso Water in securing the grant funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which allocated $8.3 billion for Bureau of Reclamation water infrastructure projects. The funding announced is part of the $1 billion in WaterSMART Water Recycling and Reuse grants program.

El Paso Water has received $20 million in federal funding for an advanced water purification facility.

How it will impact our desert community.

So exciting to join U.S. Department of the Interior and El Paso Water to celebrate $20 million in federal funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

As the only federal representative in the region to vote for this bill, I'm thrilled to continue to see El Paso receive such important investments.

The funding will be for a facility to treat wastewater for potable reuse and then convey it directly to the city’s distribution system, making it the first large-scale, direct-to-distribution potable reuse project of its kind in the United States.

🚨BIG NEWS🚨

El Paso Water received a $20 million grant from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for the Advanced Water Purification Facility.

As the only federal representative who voted for the BIL in our region, El Paso can rely on House Democrats to keep delivering.

National Safety Council Program Manager Mike Ezzell prepares to launch a drug impairment training session at El Paso Water. He is flanked by Maricruz Shark (human resources assistant) and Albert Gonzalez (heavy equipment trainer and supervisor).

El Paso safety leaders use a variety of free materials from Our Driving Concern to enhance their safety efforts, including traffic safety posters and monthly Traffic Tabloid pieces, which hang in bathrooms at the Boeing Drive facility.

What's that saying? Safety is thicker than water!
