Estancia Basin Watershed and Forest Health Experimental Monitoring Project

The purpose of the Estancia Basin Watershed and Forest Health Experimental Monitoring Project is to evaluate the effects of thinning programs and other treatment options on groundwater recharge, vegetation, wildlife, and other resources within the Estancia Basin. The study evaluates four test sites in ponderosa pine and piñon/juniper forests. This is a cooperative effort among the Edgewood, East Estancia, and Claunch-Pinto Soil and Water Conservation Districts. Funding is provided by the New Mexico Water Trust Board.
