Interior Department Invests $20 Million in El Paso Water Facility

Funding goes toward advanced water purification infrastructure.

Officials from the Department of the Interior recently celebrated a $20 million investment into the construction of the El Paso Water Advanced Purification Facility. Assistant Secretary of Water and Science Tanya Trujillo was joined by Congresswoman Veronica Escobar and El Paso Water leadership in announcing the investment, a part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s $310 million investment into water recycling projects.

“In the wake of severe drought and low water allocations throughout the West, the Biden-Harris administration is making critical investments to provide reliable access to water for families, farmers, and wildlife,” said Assistant Secretary Trujillo. “This project will treat wastewater for potable reuse and then convey it directly to the city’s distribution system, making it the first large-scale project of its kind and enabling the community to diversify its water management toolbox.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Assistant Secretary Trujillo as she heads the Water and Science Office.
  • For wisdom for Secretary Haaland as she oversees investments in water recycling.
  • That the president and his environmental advisors would seek the Lord’s leading in water management.
