How much garbage has been removed from the Santa Fe River?

    A lot. The Santa Fe River in northern New Mexico is an area that has been targeted for extensive reclamation in an attempt to reconstitute its watershed environment. The Santa Fe Watershed Association has been spearheading this effort. Volunteer organizations have also been working to pull trash out of the river; one such organization that did 63 separate clean-ups estimate that they removed 468,000 pounds (250 tons) of garbage! Through these as well as other efforts aimed at managing stormwater runoff and conserving the wildlife in the area, the hope is that the Santa Fe River can be reclaimed.
