Fighting The Water Grab

The San Agustin Water Coalition hosted an informational meeting for the public Tuesday, Nov. 10 at the Magdalena Public Library. Speakers Bruce Frederick, attorney with the New Mexico Environmental Law Center (left) and groundwater hydrologist Frank Titus spoke on the delicate hydrogeology of the San Agustin Plains. Titus, a former New Mexico Tech professor, spelled out the possible environmental damage to the southwestern portion of the state should the water grab proposed San Augustin Ranch LLC – owned by Italian businessman Bruno Modena - be approved by John D’Antonio, the State Engineer. The meeting was attended by 45 residents from Magdalena and Catron County.
