Sustainable water management is one of the biggest challenges we face in southwestern New Mexico. Our communities are dependent solely upon groundwater resources for our drinking water needs. With the high probability of long-term drought due to climate change, it is imperative that we determine how to use our water resources sustainably and create resilient water supply systems that will allow us to adapt to climate variability. Protecting our groundwater quality and implementing municipal and agricultural conservation are critical for stewarding our water resources over the long term.

GRIP advocates for sustainable management of our water resources to build resilience and self-reliance in our future water supplies by participating in local, regional and state-wide water planning and management efforts. We also participate in legal challenges and policy development initiatives related to water quality and quantity.
