Aquifer Protection

Wasteful mining practices, a lack of water conservation efforts, and poorly regulated growth and development threaten the sustainability of the Mimbres Basin and Upper Gila Basin Aquifers.

Living on the edge of the Chihuahua desert, we cannot afford such a casual attitude toward groundwater. GRIP participates in regional water planning and watershed protection efforts, advocating for sustainable use of our groundwater resources and protection of groundwater quality.
