Udall, Heinrich Announce $13 Million for New Mexico Projects

U.S. Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich said that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has provided $13 million for flood management, water infrastructure and environmental restoration projects throughout New Mexico.

The funding comes at the request of Udall and Heinrich following passage in May of the Fiscal Year 2017 omnibus appropriations bill, which funds the government through September.

“Investments in infrastructure and smart, collaborative water management strategies are critical to helping New Mexico communities address our water challenges – from maximizing our water supply to minimizing the damage from floods,” said Udall. 

“This funding will reimburse communities across the state for completed projects, help the city of Alamogordo improve safety and prevent flood damage, support operation and maintenance on the Jemez Canyon Dam, help communities protect themselves from pollution seeping from abandoned mines, and lay the groundwork for new safety and infrastructure projects.”

The Corps also announced that New Mexico is eligible to receive a portion of the $2 million available through the Restoration of Abandoned Mine Sites program to assist with planning and design of projects that will protect rivers and streams.
