Chama Wastewater Treatment Plant Funded: $8M

chama river_schallauThe NM Legislature approved House Bill 55 this week. The bill included the Chama Wastewater Treatment Plant as an $8 million line item! Thank you to each and every person that contacted the Governor, NM Environment Department, and their legislature to show support.

We would also like to thank the state of New Mexico and the Village of Chama for their leadership on this issue.

Now the work begins to support the Village of Chama in building the plant and capitalizing on this tremendous opportunity. 
The Village just posted an ad for a Level III wastewater operator. Please send the ad far and wide so that we can find a qualified and committed operator for the plant.

For more information on the overwhelming community support for this project read the recent news articles, editorial, and letters to the right.

We are pleased to be celebrating this accomplishment with all of you for the benefit of our watershed, wildlife, community agriculture, fisheries, local economy, and the people of northern New Mexico.
