The primary source of drinking water in Bernalillo County is groundwater. Septic tanks have been identified as a main source of groundwater contamination.

In November 1993, the Bernalillo County Commission adopted the Groundwater Protection Policy and Action Plan that outlines steps that should be taken to protect the valuable resource of groundwater.
