Acequia Rehabilitation Program
Destroyed West Puerto de Luna diversion dam on Agua Negra Creek. Formerly, an earthen and masonry wall existed where the creek now flows, and water was diverted towards the left of the image through a headgate (hidden by the juniper) into the WPdL Ditch, with excess water flowing down the spillway (foreground). The dam was destroyed by flooding in 2006, but has since been rebuilt by the Corps of Engineers.
