Denial Is Not Only a River Posted On: 9/4/2010 6:19:05 AM
The people of Albuquerque do not live as though they are in a desert. The city doesn't want to hurt the economy so they don't give a true picture of the water crisis they are experiencing. Santa Fe is much more on top of it and has stricter water use rules. There should be NO outdoor water use unless it is recycled water, or rainwater, saved or otherwise. The aquifer under the city is having to be refilled with water from the San Juan Chama river to keep it from causing the city to sink. Places in the southeast part of the city have already begun to lower. There is also a jet fuel leak from the air force base that is making its way to the aquifer...that will cause Albuquerque to become a ghost town.
