Getting my own little pulse flow

It’s lacking the drama of the March Minute 319 pulse flow on the Colorado River, but I’m getting my own little pulse flow on the Rio Grande here in Albuquerque beginning later this week:

Beginning Wednesday, central New Mexico will get its river back – for a week.

The anemic Rio Grande, parched by drought, will get a shot of extra water, a simulated spring runoff peak, to try to nurse along the dwindling population of endangered Rio Grande silvery minnows.
