High-water levels force closure of Cochiti Lake

News Briefs

There is so much spring runoff right now, part of Cochiti Lake has been closed. 

The water levels have reached such high levels that some of the day-use areas, including the swim area, are closed. 

The Santa Cruz Road and day-use area on the Tetilla side are still open, but if the levels get much higher that will have to be closed too.
