In this issue of Environmental Flows Bulletin, the Utton Center presents stories from three of the state's most important rivers: the Rio Grande, the Gila, and the Pecos. We also offer voices and perspectives critical to understanding the complexity of water in New Mexico-and the challenges the state faces in a time of drought and climate change.

 

This summer and fall, for instance, the Middle Rio Grande ran dry for long stretches-putting pressure on water managers, farmers, and biologists trying to save the endangered silvery minnow. But while farmers and cities managed to survive a second year of drought, the fish itself hasn't been as lucky.

 

This issue of EFB also includes an interview with Interstate Stream Commission Director Estevan López, a guest column from Rio Grande Restoration's Steve Harris, and an update on forbearance in New Mexico.
