From the National Water and Climate Center (data as of 10/31/12)

Water storage in most New Mexico reservoirs remains well below total capacity and below average (Figure 7). Navajo and Heron reservoirs declined by about 48,000 and 15,000 acre-feet, respectively, in the last month. The four reservoirs on the Pecos River are only storing about 1 percent of their total capacity combined. Elephant Butte Reservoir is also extremely low, containing only about 114,000 acre-feet, a reduction of more than 93,000 acre-feet in the last year. Elephant Butteā€™s total capacity is approximately 2.2 million acre-feet. Other New Mexico reservoirs reported in Figure 7 saw small gains or losses in storage, as is typical for this time of year.
