Unprecedented EPA water funding disbursed to New Mexico | Environment

The single largest allocation ever awarded to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for water projects is being disbursed to states, and the federal windfall could bring rural New Mexico’s aging and inadequate drinking water and sewage treatment infrastructure into the 21st century.

The $50 billion allocation to the EPA, which the agency called “the single largest investment in clean water that the federal government has ever made,” is part of the $1 trillion federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) that was signed into law by President Biden last November. The money will go toward repairing the nation’s essential water infrastructure, in turn helping communities access clean, safe and reliable drinking water, prevent flooding, collect and treat wastewater to protect public health, and safeguard vital waterways.
