Please sign this petition if you care about water issues in NM

Hi,

International corporations around the world are grabbing water resources for their own profit – resources that are essential public resources.  An aquifer underlying the Plains of San Agustin in western New Mexico is under such threat now, with a group based in Italy seeking to pump 54,000 acre feet per year from the aquifer; this is more than the annual recharge.  This pumping would certainly disrupt the economy of the area, mainly ranching, and would likely dry up the flow of water into the Gila River, a rare and sensitive ecosystem and an economic and recreational resource for New Mexico.  This appropriation of essential water resources for private gain must be stopped.

That’s why I signed a petition to The New Mexico State House, The New Mexico State Senate, and Governor Susana Martinez.
