Inscription.  Essential for any settlement, water is highly valued in the high desert. Fortunately water from the Pecos River, Glorieta Creek, and area springs sustained the pueblo's growth. Whether needed for making mud plaster, creating pottery, or growing crops, water was vital to maintaining Pecos Pueblo's strength.

Water was stored in ceramic jugs and carried to where it was needed, as shown here in the early 1900s at Jemez Pueblo.
