New Mexico Communities get Funding for Water Projects

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is directing nearly $34 million in federal funding for improvements to water and wastewater systems in New Mexico, including projects at Laguna Pueblo and the cities of Lordsburg and Truth or Consequences.

In all, the USDA says, $635 million is being invested in 122 projects across the country.

A loan and grant financing package worth more than $19 million has been awarded to Laguna Pueblo to rehabilitate existing sewer lines. The money also will be used to enlarge a sewage lagoon.

Lordsburg will use nearly $5 million to complete a massive rehabilitation project of the city’s water system. That includes the installation of a backup power generator and replacement of old water lines.

In Truth or Consequences, more than $9.4 million is going toward system upgrades.
