A community based grassroots organization with a common interest in protecting, maintaining, and improving the health of both the watershed and the local economy and cultures. 46 S. Main St. Pecos.
The Upper Pecos Watershed Association (UPWA) was formed in 2006 under a grant from the New Mexico Environment Department, Surface Water Quality Bureau. The grant funds were available under provisions of the Clean Air and Water Act, Section 319. UPWA is incorporated as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, tax exempt organization and is governed by a Board of Directors elected by its members.
The primary focus of the UPWA is to address non-point source pollution issues in the Pecos watershed. UPWA will also undertake to address other significant ecological, environmental and related problems within the Upper Pecos Watershed. UPWA holds annual Stakeholder Meetings which are open to the public and prospective members. The meetings are to educate and inform all stakeholders of UPWA actions and progress, present information of general interest relating to the watershed, and also give stakeholders the opportunity to provide input on issues of concern to them.
