dc.description.abstractIn June of 2012, the Little Bear Fire burned a total area of 44,330 acres across six watersheds, including the Rio Bonito, in the Sacramento Mountains adjacent to Ruidoso, Alto, and Angus, New Mexico (U.S. Forest Service, 2012). Approximately 35,300 acres of the Lincoln National Forest, Smokey Bear Ranger District was burned. The Corps contracted for installation and operation of bypass pumps at Bonito Lake, New Mexico for seven days to support draining the lake. The potential for destructive debris flows is a serious concern in the canyons across the burn scar, including those upstream from Bonito Lake. A debris flow is a mixture of water and solids (sediment, stones, boulders, timber) which flows downhill in channels. Debris flows have a high destructive potential, comparable with rockfall, avalanche, and flood water, threatening the property and public safety downstream.en_US
