Working to promote a regional understanding among the member governments and mutual fact finding about specific water and wastewater issues, as well as discussing projects on a regional basis are just a few of the Española Basin Regional Issues Forum’s main goals.

During Tuesday night’s county council meeting held in White Rock, Charlie Nylander, of Water Matters LLC, provided councilors with a briefing on not only the goals of the EBRIF, but also an overview of the organization’s activities.

Nylander started the briefing by telling councilors that the organization is about four-and-a-half years old and has 14 committee members. “We knew the first couple of years would be for relationship building for city, county and tribal entities,” Nylander said.

EBRIF members include Los Alamos, Rio Arriba and Santa Fe counties; Cochiti, Nambé, Ohkay Owingeh, San Ildefonso, Santa Clara, Santo Domingo, Picuris, Pojoaque and Tesuque pueblos, as well as the cities of Santa Fe and Española. The organization has adopted a charter and has met monthly since August 2004. “The county has agreed to $250,000 a year in funding for EBRIF,” Assistant County Administrator Anthony Mortillaro said.
