Aquifer Recharge Field Trip

Aquifer Recharge El Paso.png

Come join El Paso Water to learn more about how the utility cleans wastewater to drinking water standards and uses it to recharge the Hueco Bolson aquifer. Observe where and how EPWater recharges the aquifer in Northeast El Paso.  You’ll be treated to a bird’s eye view through live imaging and use of a drone.  Find out about expansion plans that will help El Paso’s long-term water sustainability.  Meet at the Painted Dunes Golf Course parking lot, 12000 McCombs St. (MAP) Bring water, wear a hat. For more information, contact tour leader Scott Reinert, Water Resource Engineer, 915-253-20034,
