USGS Water-Year Summary 2019
08393610 RIO HONDO NEAR ROSWELL, NM
LOCATION - Lat 33°24'31.59", long 104°28'18.18" referenced to North American Datum of 1983, Chaves County, NM, Hydrologic Unit 13060008, on right bank 0.25 mi upstream from Red Bridge Road, 0.60 mi upstream from Berrendo Creek, and 1.1 mi north on State Road 265 (intersection of Red Bridge Road and U.S. Highway 380), at Pecos River mile 588.
DRAINAGE AREA - 2,900 mi². (approximate contributing area)
SURFACE-WATER RECORDS
PERIOD OF RECORD - June 1997 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder with satellite telemetry and crest-stage gage. Elevation of gage is 3,500 ft above NGVD of 1983, from topographic map.
REMARKS - Water years 2014-2018; records fair except for estimated discharges, which are poor. Flow regulated by Two Rivers Reservoir (08390600) 25.0 mi upstream. Diversions and ground-water withdrawals for irrigation upstream from station. The waste-water treatment plant upstream of the gaging station discharges into the Rio Hondo starting at the end of October or early November, and continues until the beginning of the irrigation season. These releases can account for a fluctuation in the gage-height record during this period.
