The New Mexico Environment Department, in partnership with the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and New Mexico Department of Health, has created a SOURCE WATER PROTECTION ATLAS, which brings together hydrogeologic information that Public Water Systems can use to assess and protect their water supply sources. For instructions on using the Altlas, see the SOURCE WATER PROTECTION ATLAS USER MANUAL.
