Web site. The staff at the New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute is actively engaged in research projects throughout the state and the region. This research benefits the citizens of New Mexico by improving our understanding of our physical environment, mineral and energy resources, water, and how the landscape of our geologically spectacular state has evolved through time. The objective of the aquifer mapping program is to provide critically needed information on the "health" of the state's groundwater resource. Baseline data gathered during the studies improve our understanding of the geologic framework of aquifers, their hydrologic characteristics, water levels in the aquifers and how they change over time, and the occurrence of natural contaminants such as arsenic and uranium that affect the potability of groundwater.
The New Mexico Library of Subsurface Data houses records of thousands of wells drilled in New Mexico-including cuttings from selected wells and a variety of borehole locations.
