Let's Talk Water Issues in New Mexico

Aug 11, 2020

Let's Talk New Mexico 8/11 8a: The Navajo community of To'Hajiilee faces severe water shortages and has worked with Bernalillo County to find a way to pipe in water from Albuquerque. But a land development company stands in the way. On this week’s Let’s Talk New Mexico, we'll discuss the To'Hajiilee water crisis, plus the aftereffects of the 2015 Gold King Mine spill and this year’s dramatic increase in water use in New Mexico's largest city.

And we want to hear from you. Have you been hit hard by the drought that is affecting our state? Is your community taking steps to conserve water? What should policymakers be doing to ensure access to clean water for everyone?  Tag us on Twitter with #LetsTalkNM, email LetsTalk@kunm.org, or call in live during the show at 277-5866.
