(Dallas, Texas – October 13, 2009) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $130,000 to the Pueblo of Laguna in New Mexico. The Pueblo will use the funds to provide continued support for their water pollution control program. Surface water sampling on Pueblo lands will continue for the purpose of compiling data which may show changes over time to determine if a more thorough watershed management program is needed to develop water quality standards. Data analysis after water sampling will determine whether water quality needs of the Pueblo are being met, note any changes in the quality or condition of the Pueblo’s water, and understand and define the function and health of water stream ecosystems.
