ACTION ALERT: Hold Grant County Commissioners Accountable!

Contact your County Commissioner and Confirm his Position on the Deming Diversion/Pipeline Project

 

The Grant County Commission is having a work session on Tuesday, March 19 where they will discuss the recent Gila River resolution. Contact your county commissioner by 5pm on Monday March 18 to hold them accountable for their Gila River resolution 

 Background

On March 11, the Grant County Commission approved Resolution R-13-18 that supports the amended Deming Diversion/Pipeline Project (aka “Southwest New Mexico Regional Water Supply Project) contingent upon two conditions – it must include:

  • Grant County’s water projects; and
  • Recharging the aquifer within the borders of Grant County.

The amended Deming Diversion/Pipeline project:

  • Does not include Grant County’s water projects;
  • Includes a pipeline to Deming rather than keeping the water in Grant County.

Therefore, the Grant County Commission appears to not support the Deming Diversion/Pipeline Project.

Email your commissioner TODAY and ask him:  given Deming’s amended project, do you support the Deming Diversion/Pipeline project?
