Exciting New Partnership!
We are pleased to announce that we have begun a partnership with Colorado Open Lands and the University of Colorado Law School's Getches-Wilkinson Center to provide low or no-cost legal assistance and educational materials to our members. Law students will be under the supervision of Professor Sarah Krakoff, Ryan Golten (former NM Legal Aid attorney with expertise in acequias and land rights), Sarah Parmar, and practicing water attorneys Peter Nichols and Karl Kumli. The law students are drafting an Acequia Handbook with legal and governance guidance. They are also working with acequias who wish to adopt bylaws and incorporate (if you are on an acequia and would like assistance, see application below). Finally, a group of students is working with acequias that do not appear on the state's tabulation list to help irrigators document their rights and establish their priority.
