Zia Pueblo Watershed Assessment

The Pueblo of Zia Watershed Assessment will result in the development of a Watershed Management Plan for Pueblo lands within the Jemez River watershed. The study will assess the impacts of sedimentation and erosion, habitat degradation, mining, agriculture, and future economic development.  The study will also address water availability, sustainability of existing springs, protection of cultural resources from the impacts of future development and ecosystem processes, and the sustainability of multiple land uses into the future.
