ADVANCED WASTE WATER TREATMENT PLANT (AWWT)

The AWWT facility has been in operation since 1983. Its Rotating Biological Treatment System process remains to be one of the top treatment systems. Currently, the Town of Red River services 600 customers and as many as 8000 visitors per day during our busy seasons. The Treatment plant must meet New Mexico Environmental Department (NMED) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) performance standards. The town makes monthly reports to NMED and EPA which detail the plant’s performance.

Our Laboratory is certified to analyze drinking water by the State of New Mexico Drinking Water Bureau.  If you would like to have your water tested for Total Coliform or E-Coli Bacteria, to ensure that your drinking water supply is wholesome, a sterile water container and instructions may be picked up weekdays between 8am and 5pm at our facility. (Lab fees apply)
The AWWT facility is located at 2 Straight Creek Trail, which is located off of State Highway 38 at mile marker 10.
