Drought Along the Rio Grande Highlights Water Management Complexities
[From: Arizona Water Resource - Summer 2013] On Saturday, June 1, 2013, water was released from Elephant Butte Reservoir in South Central New Mexico into the Rio Grande. It took more than two days to travel the 80 miles to fields near Las Cruces, as water soaked into the parched riverbed. Waiting for the flow were chile, pecan, cotton and alfalfa growers in Southern New Mexico, Western Texas and Mexico, as well as the city of El Paso, Texas, which depends on the Rio Grande for half its water supply.

New Mexico Water Dialogue 21st Annual Statewide Meeting
New Mexico has suffered through years of extreme drought, followed by a summer of greater but uneven rains—not enough, however, to equal average annual rainfall, or to replenish storage. El Niño, recently thought to be strengthening, remains weak. Updating regional water plans that were completed between 1999 and 2008 is now underway. The basic challenge remains the same: to close the gap between supply and demand. But with drought, warming, and greater unpredictability as the likely "new normal," it may be that there will just be less water to meet aggregate demand. If so, New Mexicans will need to identify the associated economic, environmental, social and cultural vulnerabilities and learn together how to live with less water.

Researchers Look at Water Leasing Project as Possible Option for State Water Issues
With drought becoming more and more evident in the Land of Enchantment, water users and managers in New Mexico might have some tough decisions to make in the future without any help from Mother Nature. As long term drought persists and water supplies tighten, policymakers in New Mexico might have to think creatively to find flexibility when it comes to satisfying the thirsty needs of the state.
