New Mexico Water Quality Facts
Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems
New Mexico is the fifth driest state in the United States, receiving on average less than 10 inches of rain annually. Due to frequent drought and water shortage, water in New Mexico often travels long distances to serve its population of 2,085,538 residents. As only a fraction of New Mexico's water is supplied by surface sources, such as the Rio Grande and Santa Fe River, much of the state sources its water from underground wells and aquifers.
Poor water quality in New Mexico, mainly as a result of scarcity and overtreatment, may cause a variety of household problems. These issues may include water that is hard and has an unpleasant taste or smell, limescale buildup, and glassware that is spotty or cloudy.
