New Mexico Water Science Center
Welcome to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Web page for the water resources of New Mexico; this is your direct link to all kinds of water-resource information. Here you'll find information on New Mexico's rivers and streams. You'll also find information about groundwater, water quality, and many other topics.
Featured Project: StreamStats
A Web-based GIS (Geographic Information System) that provides users with access to an assortment of analytical tools that are useful for water-resources planning and management, and for engineering design applications, such as the design of bridges.Find a Study Area
Interactive Maps Delivering Current Streamflow Conditions
The maps utilize zoom and pan to allow you to focus in on the water-monitoring sites that interest you. The maps show current streamflow as compared to historical records.Visit the Sites
In order to provide long-term storage of diverted surface water from the Rio Grande as part of the Aamodt water rights settlement, managed aquifer recharge by surface infiltration in Pojoaque River Basin arroyos was proposed as an option.
A new interactive map and companion report from the U.S. Geological Survey allows residents living in and around New Mexico’s Jemez Mountains to see where they’re located in relation to postwildfire debris-flow hazards.
Basin characteristics and mean annual streamflow data for streamgages in New Mexico and adjacent states, 2017
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI), identified basin characteristics and estimated mean annual streamflow for a regional study of 169 USGS surface-water streamgages throughout the state of New Mexico and adjacent states. The basin characteristics and mean annual...Mitchell, Aurelia; Tillery, Anne C.
Repeat microgravity data from Mesilla Valley, New Mexico, 2016-2017
This dataset represents the network-adjusted results of relative- and absolute-gravity surveys in Mesilla and Las Cruces, New Mexico. Relative-gravity surveys were carried out using a Zero Length Spring, Inc. relative-gravity meter. The effect of solid Earth tides and ocean loading were removed from the data. Instrument drift was removed by...Kennedy, Jeffrey R.; Robertson, Andrew J.; Carruth, Robert; Rinehart, Alex J.
Capturing spatiotemporal variation in wildfires for improving postwildfire debris-flow hazard assessments: Chapter 20
Wildfires can increase the frequency and magnitude of catastrophic debris flows. Integrated, proactive natural hazard assessment would therefore characterize landscapes based on the potential for the occurrence and interactions of wildfires and postwildfire debris flows. This chapter presents a new modeling effort that can quantify the variability...Haas, Jessica R.; Thompson, Matthew P.; Tillery, Anne C.; Scott, Joe H.
