Collision of crises threatens Rio Grande and its communities

ALBUQUERQUE, NM—To maintain a living Rio Grande and seek climate resilience for both people and ecosystems, WildEarth Guardians today warned federal and state water managers in New Mexico that it will file a lawsuit in federal court if the water agencies don’t do more to protect and ensure recovery of imperiled species. The group sent its 60-day notice of intent to sue to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, State of New Mexico, and Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District detailing how past and present water management decisions continue to harm river flows, ecosystem health, and violate the Endangered Species Act.

Wild Rice River Structure Will Help Tame Floods in the Red River Corridor

Flooding has long been a fact of life for the Fargo, N.D., and Moorhead, Minn., metropolitan area, with spring thaws and storms sending the Red River spilling from its banks at least once a year.
