The Sapello River originates in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in San Miguel County of northern New Mexico and flows east for 27.3 miles to Watrous, NM where it joins the Mora river. The Mora River is a tributary to the Canadian River. The Sapello River was the subject of an intensive three week study by the Water Resources 573, Field Methods class from the University of New Mexico in May and June, 2008. The main objective of the study was to conduct a stream assessment of the Sapello River that will serve as a baseline for future work.
