The mission of the Natural Resource Services is to steward Bernalillo County’s natural resources. We do this by educating the public about protection and conservation of these resources, assisting with prudent development, monitoring, and providing technical input to the county’s policies and projects.


This includes permitting and enforcing well and wastewater ordinances, overseeing the county’s water conservation and utility connection efforts, ensuring compliance with our federal storm water quality permit, performing groundwater resources assessment and monitoring, reviewing and inspecting development projects, and participating in water rights proceedings. We also provide public education on water resources, participate in regional and state planning efforts, and provide internal technical consulting on environmental matters to other county departments.
