Current Rio Bosque Water Conditions

Water discharges from pipeline to Wetland Cell 2 at Rio Bosque Wetlands Park, 18 Oct 2015

Water deliveries to the park from the Roberto Bustamante Wastewater Treatment Plant resumed May 1.  Portions of the park's wetland cells are now flooding. 

On April 7, the first-ever deliveries of Rio Grande Project irrigation water to the park began.  Water from this source was delivered throughout the rest of April, then cut off temporarily when the water from the Bustamante Plant became available.  Additional irrigation-water deliveries took place in May and June.  For more on this important new source of water for the park, see the latest issue of Rio Bosque News (6/28/2017)
