Favorable conditions expected for rafting, kayaking

News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – For those who enjoy rafting or kayaking, this will be a good year to do it.

The Bureau of Reclamation and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says snow pack is above average in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico for the first time in years.

Officials say because of that, the reservoirs along the Rio Chama and Rio Grande will likely get close to full.

Elephant Butte in southern New Mexico is also expected to go up considerably. That’s also good news for farmers.
