New Mexico Water Science Center
NEW MEXICO PROJECTS
New Mexico Water-Resources Projects
The USGS New Mexico Water Science Center conducts scientific projects that provide reliable, impartial, and timely information to resource managers, planners, and other customers. Federally funded activities in New Mexico generally emphasize regional projects assessing surface-water and ground-water conditions, how natural processes and human activities affect those conditions through time, and the development of new tools and techniques for understanding complex hydrologic systems. Through the USGS Cooperative Water Program, Water Science Center scientists collaboratively design and conduct water resource investigations with State, Tribal, and local partners.
