The tiny village of Embudo about fifty miles north of Santa Fe was a location of a station on the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. Few know the true place Embudo has in the development and settlement of the arid west during the eighteen eighties. Embudo became known as the "Birthplace Of Systematic Stream Gaging." The attached is a synopsis of this and the demis of "The Chile Line."  Download and readd the article below.

    Thanks Art, I never knew about the history of the gaging stations. Very interesting and as they say just up the road from where I live.

    Neat article, but a minor quibble. The 'Chili Line' is traditionally given the Texan spelling, presumably to honor the Texas, Santa Fe and Northern Railroad Company, which completed the line from Santa Fe to Espanola.
