The Albuquerque Division is the most heavily urbanized division of the MRGCD. It serves irrigated acreage in southern Sandoval and Bernalillo Counties. In addition to the City of Albuquerque, it encompasses the town of Bernalillo, and Villages of Corrales and Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. The Division also serves Sandia Pueblo, a major portion of Santa Ana Pueblo and a portion of Isleta Pueblo.

The Albuquerque Division receives water diverted from the Rio Grande at the Angostura Diversion dam. Angostura dam is a low-head weir constructed across the Rio Grande about 6 miles north of Bernalillo. Angostura Dam was built about 1934 by -the MRGCD. A small amount of flow enters the Division directly from the Cochiti Division, without being diverted at Angostura.

The Albuquerque Division is probably the most complex area of the MRGCD. Most of the canals in the Division are directly descended from Acequias founded during Spanish rule in the 17th and 18th centuries. Plot size is generally small and there are literally thousands of turnouts served by many community ditches. Urbanization has further complicated the delivery system, with many ditches disappearing into pipe, reappearing, disappearing again, etc. Urbanization has also resulted in already small plots being further divided, and a preponderance of casual irrigators watering lawns, garden plots, etc.

The Division operates and maintains about 351 miles of canals which provide irrigation for the benefit of about 10,325 acres and is staffed by 54 employees.
