Where does Albuquerque area stormwater go after it drains into a storm drain?

Stormwater that does not seep into the ground drains into a system of pipes, channels and arroyos and travels, sometimes many miles, before being released into the Rio Grande. The large North Diversion Channel in northeast Albuquerque, which you have probably driven over or biked next to, carries stormwater north until it flows into the Rio Grande near the Bernalillo and Sandoval County boundary.
