NMED COVID-19 Wastewater Surveillance Program Innovation Video Wins ECOS Award

September 30th, 2021

In May of this year, the Environmental Council of States (ECOS) put out a call for Innovation Videos from states across the country to feature during the ECOS annual Fall Meeting. These videos would highlight innovative ways that states are tackling a given area of industry.

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) submitted a feature to the event highlighting the ongoing COVID-19 Wastewater Surveillance Program that Souder, Miller & Associates has been working on since December of 2020. The video was selected as the winner of the ECOS 2021 State Innovation Award in the category of Water.

We’re proud to have such critical and innovative work recognized on a national platform and we would like to wish all members of the NMED team, as well as all parties involved in the making of the video a heartfelt congratulations on this achievement!
