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 29 April.  Water is flowing the entire 2-mile length of the former bend of the Rio Grande that winds through the park, and portions of both wetland cells are currently flooded. 

Intermittently, we are supplementing the flows from the Bustamante Plant with irrigation water from the Riverside Canal.  This additional water floods larger areas within the wetland cells and provides periodic high flows along the old river bend. (8/10/2018)
