Environmental Assessment - Perennial Rio Grande Silvery Minnow Refugia at Drain Outfalls

The Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District along with its project partners HabiTech in Laramie, Wyoming; New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico; and the Bureau of Reclamation Denver Technical Service Center, are proposing to implement habitat enhancement measures in three drain outfalls in the upper Isleta Reach of the Middle Rio Grande. These features will create and/or improve perennial refugia habitat for the endangered Rio Grande silvery minnow. The proposed project is funded by, and is under the oversight of, the Middle Rio Grande Endangered Species Act Collaborative Program. The Isleta Reach is bounded upstream by Isleta Diversion Dam and downstream by San Acacia Diversion Dam.
