The Rio Grande Canalization Project (RGCP) consists of a narrow river corridor that extends 105.4 miles along the Rio Grande, from below Percha Dam in Sierra County, New Mexico to American Dam in El Paso, Texas. The RGCP, operated and maintained by the USIBWC since its completion in 1943, was constructed to facilitate water deliveries and provide flood control to the Rincon and Mesilla Valleys in New Mexico, El Paso Valley in Texas, and Juárez Valley in Mexico. The flood control system consists of 57 miles of levee on the west bank of the Rio Grande and 74 miles over the east bank. The east and west levees are not continuous throughout the project.
