The contract may also include hydraulic engineering design, general engineering design, and environmental services.
The Upper Colorado Region encompasses all or parts of Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming, with most work activities expected to be performed within the State of New Mexico, on the Rio Grande, Rio Chama, San Juan, and Pecos rivers. The Middle Rio Grande Project, extending from Velarde, New Mexico to Elephant Butte reservoir, is anticipated to be a focus area for work.
