COCHITI LAKE, N.M. (KRQE) - Dangerous storm runoff surging from the Jemez Mountains has closed Cochiti Lake again.
The popular recreation lake on the Rio Grande between Albuquerque and Santa Fe reopened just last week.
It had been closed since late June initially because of the Las Conchas Fire and then by debris and ash washing down from the massive burn scar.
Flash floods on Sunday and Monday dumped more ash and large debris into the lake including fallen trees and trunks.
When the lake reopens will be a day-to-day decision. The latest information is available by calling the lake visitor center at 465-0307.
