'An unprecedented, historic drought in southern New Mexico extending into 2013 has created extreme circumstances for farmers who depend on irrigation waters from the Rio Grande. Ordinarily Percha Dam in Sierra County would hold back river water. However, the Rio Grande in southern New Mexico has been dry for most of the year. A small amount of water was scheduled to be released from Elephant Butte Lake for irrigation in early summer. However, the water will be cut off after only 30 days. Irrigation officials say the situation is dire. The irony of the No Swimming sign shown here is illustrated by the dry diversion channel piled up with dry leaves.'
