In the last 10 years, BECC, in coordination with NADB, federal, state, and local agencies in Mexico and the United States, has successfully addressed many of these health threats and forged new methods of doing so. The 105 projects certified between 1994 and 2004 will bring much needed environmental infrastructure, and corresponding health benefits, to approximately 8 million border region residents.
The variety of these projects is noteworthy. Of the certified projects, there are 67 water and wastewater projects, 45 in the United States and 22 in Mexico; there are four air quality projects, all in Mexico; and there are 21 water conservation projects, 20 in the United States and one in Mexico. This list demonstrates BECC's attention to projects in the expanded range of eligible sectors approved by the BECC and NADB boards in 2000-hazardous waste, air quality, clean, and efficient energy, public transportation, municipal planning and developement and water conservation.
