- New Mexico Awarded More than $1 Million in Federal Disaster Assistance Following the Sept. 2014 Flooding
DENTON, Texas – The state of New Mexico has been awarded more than $1 million for debris removal in the aftermath of severe storms and flooding in Sept. 2014.
The heavy rains and flooding in 2014 flowed into arroyos, acequais, the Rio Nambe River and the Pojoaque River just north of Santa Fe. This caused more than 17,000 cubic yards of sedimentary debris to be deposited into the Nambe Falls Reservoir. The reservoir provides water for nearby municipalities and also for irrigation purposes.English
