Elephant Butte Dam Will be a Century Old in 2016

a light post on Elephant Butte Dam

Engel Dam, Woodrow Wilson Dam, Elephant Butte Dam…who changed the damned dam’s name?

Content adapted from text written by local historian Fletcher
During the 1880s, Bew Mexico complained that between Colorado and New Mexico, the Rio Grande was being consumed before it reached the international border at Juarez. Mexico justified a prior right to the water because of ancient usage, a rationale recognized by international law. Thus the conflict began.

By 1916 when the Dam was completed, it truly was an engineering wonder, the largest facility of its kind in the world. The dam’s purpose had been achieved, creating an extensive system of irrigation and making thousands of acres of rich soils available for farming.

New Mexico festivals and events – Here is your complete list of the top New Mexico festivals and events for 2014 to 2014! The choice of Elephant Butte Dam for the dam site was based on the geologic setting of the area. It only place in southern New Mexico where the Rio Grande had cut a deep canyon into resistant bedrock. This bedrock, primarily Mesaverde grade sandstone, is part of the Cutter sage uplift. The deep canyon provides a natural constriction for the dam and the sandstone provides strong footing.

In 1963, New Mexico State Parks too over the management of Elephant Butte Lake, at which point major construction efforts to cater to tourists became a priority.
The Dam was closed to traffic after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on US soil. In recent years the Dam has been opened for events such as the Dammit Man Triathlon and the State Parks’ First Day Hike on January 1, 2014.
