The Pecos river provides water to the whole city and passes to Texas where it ends in the Rio Grande. To see a fraction of its grand structure, visit the Pecos River Flume.

During the late 19th century, a number of dams were built here for irrigation purposes and soon the river was embraced by farms. The main structure of the dam was supported by a wooden flume standing at a height of 145 feet and carrying water over a bend in the river itself! Today, the dam that gave the river the title of ‘the only river that crosses itself’, is worth a walk around for its sheer history.

  • It’s fun to go and see and try to fish, I wish that people would clean up the trash and stop driving in the swamp area. They make it difficult to enjoy.
