DescriptionThe dynamic characteristics of the Middle Rio Grande (MRG) in central New Mexico have been of both interest and concern for the regulatory agencies involved with its management. The MRG has experienced sedimentation problems, prompting the development and implementation of sediment detention and flood control features, including the construction of Cochiti Dam in 1973, whose effects have been significant and extensively studied.
