It is a PR-must for the industry powerhouses who have trillion-dollar stakes in the Permian Basin and need to be seen as responsible corporate citizens.
NMSU, consortium partners awarded $100 million grant to tackle nation’s water challenges – New Mexico

As a member of the National Alliance for Water Innovation team, Pei Xu, the PESCO Endowed Professor and Ward Family Endowed Interdisciplinary Chair in Civil Engineering, is leading NMSU’s effort in the consortium that includes Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, National Renewable Energy Laboratory and National Energy […]
Water scarcity is a critical issue for New Mexico, Texas and Mexico, and the Two Nations One Water U.S.-Mexico Border Water Summit 2019 will address this challenge and more at the April 23-25 event at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum.
New Mexico’s supply of groundwater should be reserved for periods of drought, communities should have sharing agreements in place when supplies are short and alternatives such as desalination should be explored regardless of the cost.
A workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 24 at the Las Cruces Convention Center, 680 E. University Ave. Members of the New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute will discuss current desalination research in the Mesilla Basin. Interested community members are encouraged to attend and share their feedback to shape the direction of future project efforts.
