New Mexico’s governor proposes $2m for water research

New Mexico’s governor Susana Martinez is proposing to spend $2 million to support water research through the New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI). The governor’s office stressed that the funding, announced on 25 November, is intended to boost water innovation in the state.

“Increased funding will enable the WRRI to expand its mission and meet any additional water research needs associated with drought, water security, water planning and water quality issues,” Martinez said.

Created in 1964 at New Mexico State University at Las Cruces (NMSU), WRRI intends to distribute the new funding to several universities including NMSU, the University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque, and New Mexico Tech, in Socorro.
