Officials will release water from Santa Rosa lake

SANTA ROSA, N.M. (KRQE) – The Pecos River south of Santa Rosa will be flowing a little faster next week.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it will begin a routine release of water from Santa Rosa Lake and dam beginning Wednesday morning.

Federal officials say the release of water is expected to drop the lake’s level by about 10 feet but said there will be no effects on recreational activities at the lake.
