The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently awarded $217,660 to the New Mexico Environment Department to support the state’s water pollution control program. The grant will help prevent, reduce and eliminate water pollution through monitoring, standard setting, enforcement and compliance activities.

“New Mexico has some of Nation's most important environmental resources, and its citizens know and value those resources better than anyone,” said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. “That's why grants that empower states to protect their environment are so important.”

“This grant will help New Mexico protect its waterways from water pollution,” said Acting Regional Administrator Sam Coleman. “Ensuring clean water is fundamental to not only our mission at EPA, but our state partners as well.”

The Clean Water Act provides funding to water pollution control programs to build and sustain effective water quality programs that ensure the health of our nation’s water bodies. The funds are awarded under section 106 of the Clean Water Act.

The objective of the Clean Water Act is to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the nation's waters. Programs under the act support monitoring, assessment, protection, and prevention of polluted runoff in waterways.
