UNM students, faculty and researchers are being featured in the annual New Mexico Water Conference.

For the first time in 65 years of putting on the event, New Mexico Water Resource Research Institute is holding the entire conference online.

What is the future of water in New Mexico? What are the constraints and opportunities to water supply in southeastern New Mexico? How will evolving water quality standards impact our state? What lessons and opportunities can we explore through the experience of the Navajo Nation concerning water access in times of a pandemic?

These and other topics are the focus of the conference from Oct. 26 - 29. See the full program and register by clicking here.

Titled “Meeting New Mexico’s Pressing Water Needs: Challenges, Successes, and Opportunities,” bring together hundreds of estimated participants representing New Mexico faculty and students, water agency staff, water planners and stakeholders from throughout the state – including The University of New Mexico.

In addition to a variety of webinars, U.S. Senator Tom Udall will give a keynote presentation. There will also be a virtual poster session, featuring the work of researchers from many of New Mexico’s universities.

The New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute is located in Las Cruces, New Mexico at New Mexico State University.
