ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Water Quality Control Commission is planning a public hearing to consider changes to the state’s dairy regulations.

The hearing will start Monday afternoon in Roswell. Officials say it’s possible the proceeding could last all week and more meetings could be scheduled in other parts of the state.

The Roswell Daily Record reports (https://bit.ly/1BSxdNb ) that the amendments would address regulations that specify what steps dairy operators have to take to prevent water pollution and to monitor water quality.

The commission has said Roswell serves as an ideal place for the hearing since it’s located in the heart of New Mexico’s dairy country.

Environmental groups were unsuccessful in trying to get the commission to hold the hearing in Santa Fe.
