The company is also protesting similar awards by Santa Fe Public Schools and Los Lunas Public Schools.

There were floods at Santa Clara Pueblo, Dixon’s Apple Orchard, Peralta Canyon, the Valles Caldera and another that caused a flash flood near El Rancho.

In all, there were 13 flood events, Ford-Schmid said.
