New Mexico is reopening two state park lakes for boating after recent heavy rains and flooding.
State Parks Director Tommy Mutz said boating can resume starting today at Storrie Lake State Park near Las Vegas and Brantley Lake State Park near Carlsbad.
Storrie Lake had been closed since June 2011 because of low water from severe drought conditions.
State parks officials said recent rains improved water levels at Brantley Lake but it was temporarily closed to boating because of debris that washed into the lake from recent flooding.
