Did You Know?

Stormwater in the Mid-Rio Grande region runs straight to the river and does not go through water treatment. Learn more about keeping our drinking water clean.

Stormwater is a leading source of pollution in the Rio Grande. And the pollution is largely human-caused! The Stormwater Team was formed in 2004 to educate individuals and businesses on how to reduce stormwater pollution by keeping trash and other pollution out of our stormwater system. We are dedicated to educating children, adults and businesses on how they can reduce stormwater pollution to keep our river clean. The Stormwater Team includes the Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority, the City of Albuquerque, the City of Rio Rancho, Ciudad Soil and Water Conservation District, the New Mexico Department of Transportation, the Eastern Sandoval County Arroyo Flood Control Authority, the Southern Sandoval County Arroyo Flood Control Authority, the Town of Bernalillo, and the Village of Corrales.
