Black Mesa Water Coalition

Companies: Peabody Energy

The Black Mesa Water Coalition (BMWC) is an inter-tribal organization led by community youth, working to end Peabody Coal's abuse of scarce water resources in the Black Mesa Area. Water from the N-Acquifer is the sole source of drinking water for native groups in Black Mesa, however Peabody's operations are quickly depleting supplies and contaminating remaining groundwater with toxic chemicals used in the coal mining process. The group is calling for an end to Peabody's use of pristine water for its coal slurry, and would like to see a shift to renewable energy sources.
