Pedestrian and motor vehicle access to the Los Alamos Reservoir will be restricted Monday, Nov. 9, and continue through June 2016.
Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities awarded a contract to CBKN Dirtworks, Inc. to restore the reservoir after several flood events filled it with sediment and compromised the access road.
Department officials warn that construction crews with heavy equipment will be utilizing the single dirt road leading up to the Los Alamos Canyon Dam and Reservoir

Citizens and visitors to Los Alamos County beware! The trapping season for fur bearing animals began Nov. 1 and runs through March 15.
Law states that traps should be 25 yards from any trail or road but they do not have to be marked with a warning in any sort of way. They can be completely invisible. My dog was caught in one in 2014 in Los Alamos County. The trap was illegally set on a trail.
Unfortunately New Mexico Department of Game and Fish was unable (or unwilling) to issue a citation. Our county council expeditiously passed an ordinance to ban them in this county.

There is great respect for dogs who work explosives. They perform an important function, and they do it with loyalty, and from my observations, enthusiasm.
