Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Navajo Reservoir is a man-made lake situated in the upstream part of the San Juan River, which is located in the northwest corner of New Mexico. The construction of the reservoir began in 1958, and it was completed in 1962. The reservoir has a capacity of 1,708,600 acre-feet, making it the second largest body of water in New Mexico. The San Juan River and its tributaries provide the majority of the water supply to the reservoir, with snowmelt runoff contributing to the supply in the spring. The reservoir is used for various recreational activities, such as boating, fishing, and camping. Additionally, it provides irrigation water to the surrounding agricultural lands. The Navajo Dam and Reservoir project has played a significant role in the economic development of the region.
