The Panel Discussion will include an afternoon of presentations by a dynamic group of individuals each spearheading initiatives that address the crucial water issues facing us on a local and global level.
The topics will include the commodification of water, specifically addressing the attempted WATER GRAB by a New York Corporation to drill 37 wells, extract and sell 54,000-acre feet of water from a Paleolithic basin beneath the San Augustin Plains and the ongoing battle by Catron County residents to halt the project. Goals of our effort include water conservation, responsible stewardship of the watershed and water as an essential component of wildlife habitat.
