Northeast New Mexico Regional Water Planning

Steering Committee Meetings Scheduled

To Help Update Regional Water Plan

Public invited to comment on Draft Plan through June 10, 2016

Santa Fe – The New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission (ISC) is currently working with all of New Mexico’s 16 water planning regions to finalize regional water plan updates by the fall of 2016.  This process includes having three ISC-facilitated regional steering committee meetings in each region, all of which are open to the public.

Each regional steering committee is composed of a representative group of water users who work together to identify and determine strategies to address the region’s unique future water needs, support effective local water resource management, and reconcile gaps between supply and demand. The steering committees also compile information about projects, programs, and policies to be implemented in each region.


Regional steering committee meetings are open to the public and all are encouraged to attend. Opportunities for the public to make comments on the draft regional water plan updates will be coordinated through local steering committees. The Northeast New Mexico planning region includes Union, Harding, Quay, Curry, and Roosevelt Counties, and the draft regional water plan update is available at http://www.ose.state.nm.us/Planning/RWP/region_01.php.  The regional water planning steering committee will be accepting public comments until June 10, 2016.  Please address your comments to Sandy Chancey, Eastern Plains Council of Governments Executive Director, 418 Main St., Clovis, NM  88101, schancey@epcog.org


The first of the three fiscal year 2016 Northeast New Mexico regional water planning steering committee meetings was held on February 29, and the other two meetings have been scheduled for Monday, April 4 and Monday, May 16.  These meetings will be held from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Tucumcari Convention Center, Liberty Room, 1500 Route 66, Tucumcari, NM 88401.  Locations, dates and times of all regional steering committee meetings are posted on the Interstate Stream Commission’s website, and are subject to change: www.ose.state.nm.us
