A five-year, $3.7 million grant, awarded last summer by the National Science Foundation-supported New Mexico Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, is focused on the process of making New Mexico a more water- and energy-sufficient state.
New Mexico State University is looking beyond this nation’s borders to find answers to one of the scarcest resources of the Southwest – water.
A low-cost water desalination system developed by New Mexico State University engineers can convert saltwater to pure drinking water on a round-the-clock basis – and its energy needs are so low it could be powered by the waste heat of an air conditioning system.
James P. King, of the NMSU civil engineering department, along with Christopher Brown of the geography department, and Bobby J. Creel from the New Mexico Water Research Institute, have received $83,808 from Texas A & M University (TAMU) for a project entitled “Development of Riverware Model of the Rio Grande Flow.”
