EPA Approves State of New Mexico's 2012 Clean Water Act §303(d) List

EPA is approving the State of New Mexico's submission of impaired waters as required by Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act. Water bodies included on this list receive additional attention and resources to reduce pollution, protect public health, and provide for healthy aquatic life. 

A result of cooperative efforts between EPA and the New Mexico Environment Department, the 2012 list accurately reflects impaired water bodies in New Mexico based on available data.
