Weekly 5 Year Cycle Status (Mexico Deliveries)
Waters entering the Rio Grande below Fort Quitman, which is 60 miles downstream from El Paso, Texas are apportioned to the United States or Mexico by terms set out in the 1944 treaty. Under those requirements, Mexico is expected to deliver to the U.S. a minimum of 350,000 acre-feet of water each year, on average, over a five-year cycle. The deliveries are stored at the international reservoirs of Amistad and Falcon. Below is the current weekly data sheet showing the status of Mexico’s Rio Grande Deliveries in acre-feet (AF). This page will be updated weekly.
