Summary

The transboundary Mesilla Basin/Conejos-Médanos aquifer system was identified as one of the priority transboundary aquifer systems for additional study by the United States and Mexico U.S.-Mexico Transboundary Aquifer Assessment Act of 2006 (United States-Mexico Transboundary Aquifer Act, Public Law 109-448). As one of the largest rechargeable groundwater systems by total available volume in the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo del Norte Basin region of the United States and Mexico, the Mesilla Basin/Conejos-Médanos aquifer system supplies water for irrigation as well as municipal use in El Paso, Texas; Las Cruces, New Mexico; and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico (Alley, 2013). The U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Bureau of Reclamation [...]

Purpose

To address groundwater-quantity and -quality concerns, as well as fulfill the requirements of the United States and Mexico U.S.-Mexico Transboundary Aquifer Assessment Act of 2006, the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Bureau of Reclamation completed a comprehensive hydrogeologic assessment of the groundwater resources within the Mesilla Basin. The collected time-domain electromagnetic soundings along with previously published geophysical data supplemented previously published and newly collected geochemical data in the evaluation of the hydrogeology in the southeastern part of the study area.
