Hello Acequia water users,

Water will be turned into the Jemez Springs Community Ditch on April 15th.

All members that clean their own ditches please have it cleaned by April 7th for inspection. Members whose ditches we clean annually will be billed for cleaning. If you choose to clean it yourself please let Roger know at sweetroger7@gmail.com

If you are not going to be using water this upcoming season please Water Bank your water rights. You can learn more about Water Banking in our bi-laws (link to PDF).

And, you may also find them and other information in our Google Drive:

Water rights are valuable assets.  Please make sure yours are protected by keeping the Office of the State Engineer’s records up to date with the correct Water Rights Owner.  Water Rights are recorded at the NM Office of the State Engineer (OSE).  If you have a line item on your Ditch Invoice that you will receive in the mail stating that you are not the Water Rights Owner of record, please contact the OSE at 505-383-4000 to find out how to correct this. 

You may view the list of recorded owners of Water Rights on this ditch by going to nmwrrs.ose.state.nm.us/nmwrrs/waterRightSummary.html  and input SD for Basin, 04518 for Nbr, and * for Suffix, and then click on <View Water Right Summary>. 

The Acequia Maps here jemezsprings-nm.gov/ditch-association/ and in our Google Drive might prove useful in finding your Map # and Track # to help you when speaking with the OSE.  The Google Drive link actually contains maps 5 & 6 with the Water Rights Owners of Record notated on the map itself, which may be the most useful tool of all to find your information.

Thank you for being a valuable and conscientious participant of our precious acequia.

-Roger Sweet, Mayordomo
