After a district court judge denied the state’s Sierra Club chapter a writ requiring that hearings on dairy rules be held in Santa Fe rather than Roswell, the Sierra Club now has asked the court to reconsider its denial.
On Sept. 25, First Judicial District Judge Jennifer Attrip denied the Sierra Club’s petition, but on Sept. 26 the New Mexico Environmental Law Center, representing the Sierra Club, asked the judge in a court filing to reconsider the decision. Quay County Sun

Santa Fe, N.M. – On November 14, 2014, New Mexico State Engineer denied the company Aquifer Science LLC the right to pump hundreds of acre-feet of water annually from the Sandia Underground Water Basin because there is no unappropriated groundwater available in the Basin to satisfy the application.

On behalf of dozens of landowners in the area, the New Mexico Environmental Law Center (NMELC) successfully argued before the State Engineer that there was not sufficient water in the Sandia Basin to serve the new development. The company sought to acquire the water to develop a 4000 home residential community and 18-hole golf course in the East Mountains area east of Albuquerque, NM.
