Santa Fe County is preparing to spend thousands of dollars to fix flood damage near the Santa Fe River.

Historic flooding in July decimated the riverbed, wiping out a multimillion-dollar tree restoration project. 

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the county could spend as much as $615,000 to replace thousands of cottonwood and willow tree saplings planted just weeks before the flood. 

Commissioners in Santa Fe will also consider whether to pass the proposed spending this Tuesday.
