2011 NPS Annual Report

The 2011 NPS Annual Report is now online for your review! This annual report to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides an overview of nonpoint source (NPS) management-related activities conducted in New Mexico in 2011 by the Watershed Protection Section (WPS) of the Surface Water Quality Bureau (SWQB). The report presents the state’s progress in meeting the milestones outlined in the goals and objectives of the New Mexico NPS Management Program, and provides information on reductions in nonpoint source pollutant loading and improvements to water quality of New Mexico watersheds as required under Section (§) 319(h)(11) of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The majority of funding for projects listed in this report is provided by §319(h) grants awarded to NMED by the EPA. Additional activities included are projects implemented by the WPS Wetlands Program, CWA §401 activities, N.M. Mining Act activities, and NPS projects implemented by other natural resource agencies outside of NMED. To view the report go to: nmenv.state.nm.us/swqb/wps/AnnualReports/indes.html.
