Senate Bill 1


The Regional Water System Resiliency Act creates a clear pathway for public utilities providing water or wastewater services (entities) to regionalize with another utility in New Mexico. It requires that founding or joining entities hold at least two public hearings and allow the public to give comments. If an entity is joining the regional authority, then it must not encroach upon the service area of a non-joining entity. The act lists out the rights a regional authority has, as well as the requirements of a board of directors.
