US/Mexico Border Drinking Water Study

by Blake L. Atkins, (A.M.ASCE),

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: North American Water and Environment Congress & Destructive Water


This report is an outgrowth of a more detailed report, written as part of an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study. This report represents my views, and does not necessarily represent the views of EPA. Both reports involve the study of drinking water system status for water systems residing within 100 kilometers of the US/Mexico border in New Mexico and Texas (border study area). This report characterizes water supply sources, describes water quality status, and reflects drinking water system needs for water systems within this border study area. Recommendations are also offered to address needs identified in the report. Other recommendations related to source water protection, water treatment and disinfection, water reuse/recycling, water conservation, and funding mechanisms, are included in the report.
