County Spotlight

A major water conservation project is complete at the University of New Mexico North Golf Course Urban Open Space, and is expected to save as much as 14 million gallons of water a year. The project went online April 17 and has already saved more than 1.5 million gallons of water, dramatically reducing the amount of water pumped from Albuquerque’s aquifer to irrigate the popular golf course and open space.
Wells and Wastewater
BernCo Natural Resource Services Program will be hosting its next well and wastewater workshop in the planned series for 2017 on Thursday, May 25 from 6 – 8 p.m. At the workshop, residents will learn about permitting wells with the Office of State Engineer and with BernCo, and current well and wastewater ordinances.
