For 25 years, Amigos Bravos has acted in the belief that our communities should have the technical knowledge and organizational skills to protect and preserve their own local rivers and water. We work hard to provide that knowledge and those skills to communities across the state. In return, we depend on your support so that we can be as quick to respond as possible when threats to our rivers arise. When you buy a raffle ticket, you ensure that all of us – working together – can protect and restore the rivers and waters that sustain us. If you win, you’ll have a choice between three prizes: An acre of land in northern New Mexico, OR 7 nights in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, OR $3,000 cash. Your choice! To purchase a ticket click here or call 575-758-3874. The drawing will take place live on June 20.
Thank you for your support of New Mexico’s waters!

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) will go before the New Mexico Water Quality Control Commission (WQCC) began April 9 to present its proposed water quality rules for the copper mining industry. After an 8-month stakeholder process to develop a draft rule that would be protective of groundwater at copper mine sites and provide regulatory certainty to industry, NMED upper-level managers ignored the recommendations of their technical staff and NMED Advisory Committee and rewrote the proposed rule.
