Aquifers; Groundwater; Halite; Lacustreine Features; Lacustrine Environment; Salt Deposits; Salt Lakes; Sodium Chloride; Spring-fed LakesThis is New Mexico's spring-fed Zuni Salt Lake which concentrates salt and is considered by the Zuni people to be the sacred Ma’l Oyattsik’i, the Salt Woman. The Salt Woman is now threatened by the Salt River Project. The nation’s third-largest public utility is seeking to open an 18,000-acre strip mine at Fence Lake, ten miles from Zuni Salt Lake. To settle its coal dust, the Salt River Project plans to pump 85 gallons of water a minute from the aquifers that feed the lake for the 40 years of the mine’s planned operation.
