A Victory to Celebrate: San Augustin Water Grab Denied

With the help of our members, we’ve been winning the fight against a massive water grab in beautiful west-central New Mexico!

Our second major victory came on November 15, when a state district court judge upheld a decision to deny the attempt to appropriate 54,000 acre-feet a year (approximately half of what Albuquerque uses in a year.)  Our hope is that our defeat of water speculation in Datil will send the message to speculators that they’re not welcome in New Mexico.

Check out the decision, read the press release or listen to Attorney Bruce Frederick give the play-by-play to Bill Dupuy of KSFR radio [interview starts at 7:35] Listen now.
