Mimbres Basin Hydrogeology
The NMBGMR begab a new hydrogeology study of the Mimbres basin in January 2020. The initial phase of this project is an intensive campaign of water-level measurements in wells across the basin. These measurements are a continuation of a groundwater-level measurement program that began in 1910 with data recorded annually, bi-annually, or every 5 years. However, there has been no data collected in this region since 2012. We will be revisiting the wells that were last measured in 2012. The new water-level measurements will be used to create a new water table map of the basin and to assess changes in water levels through time.
