New Mexico Water’s chemists and microbiologists conduct thousands of separate water quality tests every year, looking for microbiological, organic and inorganic compounds in the water. For certain tests they looking for quantities measured in parts per trillion; that’s like looking for a few marked pennies in three football stadiums filled to the rim with coins.
Our scientists examine water samples that are carefully shipped to the lab from sampling stations throughout New Mexico Water’s systems to ensure that your water meets or surpasses strict state and federal water quality standards. Protecting our customers’ health and safety is our highest priority.
You might not have thought much about New Mexico Water’s water quality laboratory, but the scientists in the lab have thought about your water; every drop of it.
