Who We Are

El Paso Water opened the Carlos M. Ramirez TecH2O Water Resources Learning Center in 2008 to promote water education, water conservation and total water management in the Chihuahuan Desert. The Center is owned and operated by El Paso Water, a non-profit, public utility that serves the city of El Paso.

The Center’s name recognizes the late Mayor Carlos M. Ramirez (1951-2008), who was an early and vocal supporter of the desalination plant and an advocate for funding of the plant and the learning center.
