Wildfires threaten water supplies
Founded in 1608, Santa Fe, N.M., has sustained itself for 400 years on close-to-clear snowmelt from the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Today, the New Mexico state capital's 68,000 residents still get 40 percent of their drinking water from these slopes just above town. But Santa Fe's clean water could be at high risk if a wildfire breaks out in the watershed.
