As part of development of a regional source water protection plan, in 2015–2016 the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources performed a technical review of existing hydrogeology studies in Curry and Roosevelt counties in east-central New Mexico. Additionally, groundwater quality was tested in numerous wells, and groundwater levels were examined to provide up-to-date information on the availability of groundwater in the region. This report describes the results of the hydrogeologic review and findings from the groundwater study.
Funding was provided by the New Mexico Environment Department, Drinking Water Bureau, as part of the Source Water Protection program. Additional support was provided by the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources and its Aquifer Mapping Program.
