The New Mexico Water Data Initiative
New Mexico’s water management challenges are complex and one critical attribute of these challenges is the ability of decision makers, water managers and other stakeholders to marshal the data and information necessary to support sustainable water management decisions. In 2019, New Mexico enacted the Water Data Act to identify, share and integrate key water data. This legislation launched the NM Water Data Initiative (WDI), a multi-year effort of communication and collaboration among key agencies and others collecting or managing water data for the state. Join this webinar to hear from Stacy Timmons, from the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources and Project Leader for NM WDI, about the successes and challenges of this innovative project.
