Description:

Scheduled for the upcoming Village of Corrales Council meeting on Tuesday November 12th 2013:

Representatives from the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy, the Bureau of Land Management and the Army Corps of Engineers will be present at the November 12th meeting, to provide information about their determinations for and preliminary cost estimations of repairing the siphon that brings irrigation water into Corrales from irrigation ditches on the east side of the river to the west side.  This siphon is the entrance for irrigation water into Corrales and affects the delivery of irrigation to farmers and growers throughout the Corrales community. For more information about the siphon review the following article:River Beds Drop Disturbs Buried Wood Culvert.pdf

Members of the Corrales Growers' Market and other irrigators in Corrales are encouraged to attend the November 12th Council meeting, to insure that local food production and the incomes of farmers and growers in Corrales are uninterrupted by the repairs suggested.

The Corrales Growers'' Market will be monitoring the progress of this issue and providing additional information, however individual producers and instigators input into this process will be necessary to insure these government agencies are aware that continued uninterrupted availability of irrigation water for the economic stability of our agricultural production and secure local food resources is a community priority.
