I am not a smart person,but I know what love is... sorry I've just always wanted to say that... anyway, I was wondering, not being the engineering type of fella, or the type of fella that delves into the intricacies of city planning, what kind of system does Albuquerque have in place to collect rainfall and run-off water? How is it used?
If none, why not? Do the arroyos simply drain at the Rio Grande? Talk about wasting water! I was driving up Osuna yesterday and it was just flooded beyond control and I was thinking why doesn't the city have some sort of good drainage system to gather and collect all that damn water into some storage tank somewhere.
With all the griping and whining and bumper stickers about resident water use, wouldn't it be a good idea to save the water when it comes rather than just letting the desert soak it up or evaporate away.
I'm sure there is something in place, but when the rain comes down it sure is hard to tell.
Figured someone on here would know the haps....
