The group is responsible for monitoring all available climatological data, soil moisture readings, reservoir storage levels, and other pertinent information necessary to analyze the current status of drought conditions in the State of New Mexico. The group also examines and reports on long-term forecasts to assist the DTF in their preparedness and response actions. As necessary, the MWG issues "notices" based on various stages of drought that trigger actions by the DTF. The current chair of the Monitoring Work Group is an employee of the Interstate Stream Commission.
