Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District (MRGCD) Irrigation Efficiency and Metering Program - The MRGCD Irrigation Efficiency and Metering Program was initiated in 2000 to evaluate the efficiency and metering network of the district. The purpose of the efficiency portion of the program is to identify ways to improve the delivery of limited water supplies to the irrigated lands of the district and to identify opportunities for salvage of incidental depletions that could improve water availability throughout the Middle Rio Grande region. The purpose of the metering portion of the study is to evaluate the status of the metering network of the district and to determine the need for installation of additional gaging stations to ensure that all diversions, returns and significant routing of water are measured, December 2002

Assessment of Flow Conditions and Seepage on the Rio Grande and Adjacent Channels, Isleta to San Marcial, with Figures 1 though 48 and Tables 1 though 6, this study is Phase IV of a program of data collection designed to support the characterization of the flow regime in the study area by quantifying losses and gains occurring in the Rio Grande and adjacent channels in the Middle Rio Grande valley between Belen, New Mexico and Elephant Butte Reservoir, Summer 2001

Geomorphic and Sedimentologic Investigatons of the Middle Rio Grande Between Cochiti Dam and Elephant Butte Reservoir, The geomorphology and sedimentology of the Middle Rio Grande between Cochiti Dam and Elephant Butte Reservoir have been investigated to: (1) evaluate the historic and present characteristics of the river, (2) identify the natural and human-induced factors that control the present day river characteristics, and (3) evaluate existing opinions regarding the causes of channel narrowing, armoring of the bed and incision of the river. The investigation was based on a review of published and unpublished literature and data, and limited aerial and field reconnaissance.he Interstate Stream Commission's study of the Middle Rio Grande Geomorphic and Sedimentology of the Middle Rio Grande Between Cochiti Dam and Elephant Butte Reservoir.
