    The City of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County completed the construction of the Buckman Direct Diversion (BDD) Project in December 2010. The BDD project takes surface water from the Rio Grande and then treats and distributes these waters to the City and the County through their drinking water distribution systems.

    An independent peer review of the potential exposure to LANL contaminants through the drinking water pathway concluded that BDD drinking water meets all health standards. Santa Fe city and county water from the Buckman well and Buckman diversion meets all drinking water standards according to their reports.
