NFC: Our Vanishing Riparian Landscapes in the Southwest

" Late in the first millennium, Pueblo settlers began the process of 
clearing, modifying and polluting Southwestern rivers and streams and the 
riparian (or, bordering) woodlands, making way for a sedentary community life 
with villages, irrigated fields and commerce. Early in the third millennium, 
Euro-American settlers have very nearly finished the process, having 
profoundly altered an estimated 90 percent of the riparian landscape and 
having planned changes for much of the remaining 10 percent."
