  • Our watershed: The opportunities

    Editor’s note: This is the sixth in a series running over several consecutive Fridays. It is written by members of the Hermit’s Peak Watershed Alliance, which seeks to foster land stewardship in the Gallinas, Sapello and Tecolote watersheds.

    To have adequate water supply, Las Vegas needs well designed, built and maintained water treatment, storage and delivery infrastructure. The first piece of this system is a healthy watershed to gather, clean and supply this water.
