History of Site and Related Water Issues

The site we are performing is at De Vargas park which sits just near Santa Fe River. The River is in need of restoration as is much of the bodies of water in New Mexico and the world! Restoration is an integral process needing community and projects like Global water Dance. The channel and banks in many sections of the river are in poor condition. The Santa Fe River Watershed is 285 square miles – from Lake Peak (12,408’) in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the confluence with the Rio Grande at Cochiti (5,220’).
10% of this area (17,400 acres) lies above the City of Santa Fe, primarily within the Santa Fe National Forest.
At Lake Peak, precipitation averages 35 inches/year; at Santa Fe 14 inches/year; at Cochiti 10 inches/year.
The Santa Fe River is 46 miles long.
