Elephant Butte Lake is 6.8% full as of 2014-08-01

Elephant Butte Lake (located in New Mexico) is governed by the Rio Grande Compact. The Rio Grande Compact is an interstate compact signed in 1938 between the states of Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Chihuahua (Mexico) and approved by the U.S. Congress, to equitably apportion the waters of the Rio Grande Basin. Water from the lake supplies irrigation water as well as about 50% of El Paso's supply when available.
