Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Nambe Falls Reservoir is a man-made lake located in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. Construction of the dam began in 1963 and was completed in 1976. The reservoir has a capacity of 3,000 acre-feet and serves as a vital water source for the surrounding communities. It is fed by surface flows from the Nambe River and by snowpack from the surrounding Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The reservoir supports agricultural irrigation and recreational activities such as fishing, camping, and boating. The area is also home to the Nambe Pueblo, a Native American community, who use the water for cultural and irrigation purposes. The reservoir has faced challenges in recent years due to drought conditions in the region, leading to restrictions on water usage.
