Velarde and the Llano Canal: A Case Study
Horvath, Rosemary
La Confluencia, 1, 1, 10-17, 76
In arid New Mexico, decisions about water have always been a particularly strong source of tension between local communities and the bureaucracy. In one revent case, the community of Velarde had successfully blocked plans for a diversion dam and canal which would have brought new water into the Espanola valley, but would also have destroyed Velarde's ancient acequia system, and threatened the ecology of a stretch of the Rio Grande.
