(Dallas, Texas – May 5, 2010) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $386,847 to the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED). The funds will be used by NMED to map and classify wetlands in the Canadian River drainage, including playas and isolated wetlands in northeastern New Mexico. The funds will also be used to acquire imagery and assemble a geo-database, conduct pre-and post-mapping field reviews, and develop a draft landcover classification for the project area.
