For sailing fans like Tom Kellogg, the second year of a bone-dry marina at Heron Lake, due to drought, has been tough to watch. The reservoir’s waterline is barely visible from the docks, where sailboats and Hobie catamarans once floated.

“Heron used to be the prettiest lake in New Mexico,” said Kellogg, who kept a 26-foot sailboat at the marina. “It was a ‘no-wake’ lake, which was perfect for sailors and fishermen. Over the years, we have spent many nights and weekends recreating on the lake and in the area. It makes me so sad to see Heron’s demise.”

    Santa Fe City, Santa Fe County, the State of New Mexico, and the federal government will spend 100s of millions to bring in water for developers while at the same time New Mexico's lakes are drying up. In the name of supposedly sustainable growth, they are destroying New Mexico.
