(Dallas, Texas – November 2, 2007) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $812,669 to the New Mexico Environment Department for environmental projects. Among the planned projects, the state plans to establish a demonstration project for the restoration of three threatened, historical wetlands in Santa Fe County. The state also plans to restore 30 acres of wetland and riparian areas in the West Fork of Gila River. The funds will also be used to gather data that will aid in linking the ecological condition of wetlands, by biological indicators, to the condition of wetlands. Funds from this grant will also be used for imaging and monitoring projects.
