To the casual observer, the piles of material next to one of the state hospital’s parking lots are junk.
But state officials don’t see it that way. They said they are trying to transfer the piles to an entity that needs scrap materials.
They said the hospital — known formally as the New Mexico Behavioral Health Institute — soon plans to remove the materials from the area east of the parking lot, which is just east of Hot Springs Boulevard. The piles can’t be seen from Hot Springs.
