Critical drought in NM incites increased awareness of water conservation and activism


One of the creative responses to the water crisis is the National Water Dance. The live-streamed event features dancers from across the USA, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico who form a movement choir to inspire environmental action.

Representing the water crisis in New Mexico, Keshet Dance has partnered with the New Mexico Water Collaborative to show movement in a specific location that celebrates the collaboration between various stakeholders to install an onsite wastewater treatment system and reusing the recycled water to support an urban green space

Yvette Tovar, Executive Director, New Mexico Water Collaborative (NMWC) says, “We live in an arid climate with a new normal of less snow in the winter, less rain and hotter temperatures in the summer. We have a responsibility to conserve, recycle, and reuse water. Projects like Mill Pond Refuge demonstrate viable solutions to water scarcity in our state.”
