The entire stretch of the Santa Fe River that runs through the city was flowing Wednesday and Thursday as officials released water from a municipal reservoir to prepare for spring runoff. The flows also have been helped by recent rain and runoff from adjoining arroyos.

The city has been releasing water from the McClure Reservoir to leave room for snowmelt flows while the neighboring Nichols Reservoir in the Santa Fe Municipal Watershed stands empty for repairs. Contractors are completing a project to rebuild a water-intake structure.
