The US Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $450,000 to the New Mexico Environment Department as the first portion of an annual $900,000 continuing grant for the state’s hazardous waste program. 

Program activities include permitting, clean ups and public outreach, as well as inspections, compliance assistance and enforcement.

New Mexico will match 25 per cent of the grant.
