NMELC’s Reply to Augustin Plain Ranch’s Response re Motion to Dismiss

Today, Staff Attorney Bruce Frederick sent another legal shot over the bow of Augustin Plains Ranch. In February, Frederick submitted a Motion to Dismiss the Ranch’s application to appropriate more than 17 billion gallons (54,000 acre-feet) of groundwater annually near Datil, NM.
