The Estancia Basin Regional Water Plan
Given the concerns and recommendations of Basin residents, the EPWPC compiled and reviewed known data on water resources in the Basin and developed future economic, population and water use projections (Phase I Report); evaluated and summarized the data; developed conclusions, goals and alternatives; applied the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission Criteria from the NMISSC Regional Planners Handbook and Template to analyze five basic scenarios; developed the Water Plan; presented the Water Plan for public scrutiny and comment; finalized the Water Plan and presented it to the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission.

Estancia Basin Dynamic Water Budget Model
The Estancia Basin Dynamic Water Budget is a water balance simulation model for the Estancia Basin. It was built to provide an interactive tool for water planners to test policy options and water planning concepts for this basin. This model is based on the concept of system dynamics.
The Estancia Basin Dynamic Water Budget Report, Sandia Report SAND2004-1796, describes the model.
