People drink and use water every day. Therefore, the environmental health impacts of drinking water are extremely important. The majority of New Mexicans are provided high quality drinking water. About 90% of people in New Mexico get their water from a Community Drinking Water system.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets regulations for treating and monitoring drinking water delivered by community water systems. There are water quality standards and monitoring requirements for over 90 contaminants.

The New Mexico Environmental Public Health Tracking works closely with community, state, and federal organizations to explore connections between drinking water and health outcomes. In addition our Biomonitoring Program program looks at arsenic and Contaminants in urine and drinking water.
