Regional Water Planning Stakeholders – Call for Participation and Local Input


The New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission (ISC) has begun the process of working with the 16 New Mexico water planning regions to update their Regional Water Plans for incorporation into a State Water Plan update over a two-year planning period.  The first year will focus on updates of the technical data and reactivation and formation of the regional steering committees.  The second year will focus on completion of the updates by the regions to identify the programs, policies, and projects that will best serve the region’s needs. The water plans accepted by the ISC will be used as a foundation to begin the updates, to build on the previous work completed by the regions rather than “starting over.”  In addition to the regional water plans’ value as an expression of a region’s vision for addressing water issues, the updated regional water plans will be used to outline regional priorities for Water Trust Board and other funding  applications. See link for the Water Trust Board’s funding and application criteria.
