New Mexico town is about to run out of drinking water

New Mexico's Atown is experiencing a triple threat from climate impacts, including drought and wildfire. 

Due to the massive wildfire that ravaged New Mexico, pollution and debris will cause 

Las Vegas to run out water by September. Residents living at the edge of Las Vegas were forced to 

flee in May when the Calf Canyon/Hermits Peak fire raged nearby. The city's water comes mainly 

from a reservoir which feeds into the nearby Gallinas river. After intense rains in July that fell 

on the same area as the fire, the river now has runoff from flooding.
