Nothing terrifies me more than the loss of the river (and water in general) in NM.  When we flew back into town a few weekends ago, you could easily see that there was practically no water left.  I think it's definitely time to reduce our use.

Here is about much less water usage for farming.  riograndefarm.org

You can install drip watering on grass too. The City could install them on the parks.

Best way very little grass

BJ's is pretty tasty. Lots of stuff stuffed into a huge spud.

I'm in middle of the Lovelace/ABQ Health partners dust up. It's a shame. I'm happy with both sides, amazingly. I never thought I'd say that about an insurance company or my doctors. Some things are much better in ABQ than elsewhere. Dee

To add to the list of stories, here's yet another NM cop story doing our state proud in the national press again. /sarcasm/

I haven't read/seen the sources listed here on the Rio and water shortage, but it was pointed out to the audience several years ago in multiple meetings I attended of the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District that the biggest water loss comes through evaporation, not human or agricultural use. It seems to be the logical solution is not to store it behind huge dams -- Cochiti, Elephant Butte, Caballo,and others, but find a way to put it into the ground. One place just north of Albuquerque was trumpeted as a natural place to do this. But if the science is right, might it not be a long term solution.
