Pecos River WPP Implementation Program

The Pecos River - historically, biologically, hydrologically and economically - is important to the future of the entire Pecos River Basin and the Rio Grande. The Pecos provides approximately 9.5 percent of the annual inflows to the International Amistad Reservoir, a major source of drinking and irrigation waters for the lower Rio Grande Valley...
...and its millions of residents. However, the river also contributes an estimated 26 percent of salt loading to the reservoir annually, periodically causing salinity levels to approach the maximum drinking water standard.
