Downstream of Bosque del Apache is a series of dams to store water. One of those is Percha Dam which is usually backed by a lake. In 2013 that reservoir was completely empty and this picture shows the Rio Grande downstream of that. It was not flowing but just series of isolated pools. In those pools were stranded fish. This picture shows the river. As a result, the agricultural areas farther downstream had to reduce usage 40% because there was not enough water.
