What We Do
As a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization we are focused on solutions to the water crisis in New Mexico. We do this by supporting the implementation of water conservation and water reclamation technologies for communities in our state. We are in a water crisis and consuming water at a rate that is not sustainable.
- New Mexicans use more than four million acre-feet of water per year for agriculture, industry and domestic use. That’s about one million gallons of water per person.
- We are depleting our aquifer faster than it can be replenished.
- Water is a finite natural resource.
- Conserving water is crucial to ensure that water resources are available to sustain New Mexico communities presently, and in the future.
We provide resources for the people of New Mexico to facilitate the implementation of water conservation strategies, and to educate communities about critical water issues. Opportunities to conserve and reclaim water are often limited due to economic constraints, especially for underserved populations. The water crisis affects us all regardless of socio-economic levels.
Our projects work with a variety of community organizations, for-profit businesses, schools, and other stakeholders to implement water conservation and reclamation systems.
Reclaim & Reuse Water
“I’ve worked with the New Mexico Water Collaborative for several years and know that they are an important organization for the future of New Mexico’s water supply. Their tireless efforts to bring new, innovative water-saving projects to New Mexico communities should be appreciated by everyone who lives here.”
