Phil King, New Mexico State University civil engineering professor and water adviser to the Elephant Butte Irrigation District, said water released from Caballo this week will be going to El Paso.

He said water for EBID users will be released in mid-April for the Hatch area and in mid- to late-May for the Mesilla Valley.
"Hatch has a lot of vegetables," King said. "They want water for their onions. The Mesilla Valley has more of a groundwater supply than they do down in the Hatch area. The Mesilla Valley wants surface water when the demand is highest in June, July and August."
King said EBID will start off delivering 10 inches of water per acre to its users and may increase that to 12 to 14 inches before the irrigation season is over. That compares with 11 inches in 2015, 7½ inches in 2014 and 3½ inches in 2013, the latter allotment being the worst in 100 years.
Even though things were pretty good last year and are starting out even better this year, King said the irrigation situation is nowhere near the ideal New Mexico once enjoyed.
"Everybody down here calls me Dr. Doom," he said. "But, for the past few years, going back to 2011, we've been in real sorry shape. Release of water in late February for delivery in March would be ideal. Three feet of water was once the allotment for the year."
Carlson and King expressed concern that El Niño, the moisture-laden weather pattern created by exceptionally warm sea surface temperatures in the Pacific, has failed to live up to its potential over the past couple of months.

Groundwater directly impacts surface ...

Groundwater directly impacts surface water in the lower Rio Grande and vice versa, according to Phil King, New Mexico State University civil engineering professor and a consultant to EBID.

That led former Attorney General King to sue EBID, the El Paso irrigation district and the Bureau of Reclamation. King claimed the agreement left New Mexico deprived of water that rightfully belonged to the state - even if the irrigators in southern New Mexico were generally comfortable with an accord that let them continue pumping.
"The attorney general filing that suit was a direct trigger to Texas going to the Supreme Court," Phil King said.
The U.S. government decided to support Texas in its claim last year.
"If out of the court should come some draconian method for controlling groundwater use in New Mexico, that would be catastrophic for this area," Phil King said.

Phil King, New Mexico State University civil engineering professor and water adviser to the Elephant Butte Irrigation District, said the district is delivering more water to its irrigators than it has in recent years.

"In 2013, we delivered 3½ inches (enough water to cover an acre at a depth of 3½ inches) for the year, and that was the worst allotment in 100 years," King said. "We delivered 7½ inches last year, and we're up to 11 inches this year."
King said the district probably will shut down irrigation on Aug. 15, unless the monsoon season is wet enough to stretch that out another week or two.
"The last five years have been so pathetic that we now have really low standards and this year looks good," King said.
