Annual pumpage of the municipal supply wells in Santa Fe, New Mexico has fluctuated from zero to over 4,000 acre-ft in a seemingly random manner during the period from 1950 to 1986. Water levels of seven selected observation wells have shown an overall gradual decrease in altitude ranging from about 5 to 10+ ft during the period of record. Three observation wells have shown some fluctuations but water levels have remained essentially unchanged overall, and two of the selected observation wells have shown a slight overall increase in water level altitude of 5 to 20 ft during the period of record.
