Rio Rancho Receives $286,000 for Green Infrastructure (NM)
(DALLAS – June 1, 2011) The City of Rio
Rancho, New Mexico is constructing a new well water infrastructure,
including two surge tanks, duplex model air compressors and
controls that will alleviate problems with pipe failures due to
surges from the existing equipment. The U. S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) awarded $286,000 for the work.
EPA encourages citizens to take action to protect the nation’s waters. Americans drink more than one billion glasses of tap water per day and keeping water safe is a shared responsibility. Americans can do their part by staying informed, reusing containers, recycling and keeping pollutants away from the nation’s waterways.
