Water Supply & Quality
Rio Arriba County, NM

Start Date: 6/6/2018 - End Date: 6/6/2018
Spending more time and electric on watering from the Rio Grande. Also worried about a Bosque fire coming up the river valley and burning down our house and farm and animals and crops. Also, we are breathing the smoke from a fire that is a hundred miles or less from here, whenever the wind blows in from that direction. Also, we have a burn restriction, which brings me in more money from my wood chipping services. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Alcalde 14 NE on 6/6/2018
