A southeastern New Mexico reservoir is being drained so irrigation managers can do maintenance on the dam.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation says the work on the Avalon Reservoir will be done by the Carlsbad Irrigation District. The reservoir also was drained last winter for similar work.

The federal agency and the irrigation district are warning people not to enter the area, as last year there were signs of four-wheeling within the reservoir pool and vehicles stuck in the mud.
