New Mexico lawmakers are upping the urgency in developing technology and regulations to cut back on water waste from the oil and gas industry as the state continues to struggle with increasingly harsh drought conditions and fresh water depletion. New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced the formation of a produced water "consortium" intended to research and develop polices related to the treatment, reuse and regulation of produced water, or waste water, generated by hydraulic fracturing.
