Buckman Direct Diversion
The Buckman Direct Diversion Facility (BDD) provides a safe, reliable and sustainable source of drinking water for the City of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County. The BDD improves the regional water supply under drought conditions, replaces current groundwater pumping that cannot be sustained, and makes a drought reserve possible.
