NMSU to co-host acequia research workshop Thursday

New Mexico State University and the New Mexico Acequia Association will host a workshop, “Acequias and Science: A Community Conversation,” on Zoom from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14.

The event is intended to help mayordomos, commissioners and parciantes understand scientific results and real-world implications.

The virtual workshop will include research presentations about the newly released book “Acequias of the Southwestern United States: Elements of Resilience in a Coupled Natural and Human System,” and a question and answer session and a discussion about future acequia research to address stakeholder needs. The workshop is based on a 10-year study of acequia systems that co-authors and researchers from NMSU, the University of New Mexico and Sandia National Laboratories recently published.

“Soon after ‘Acequias of the Southwestern United States’ was published online, we were asked by our partner NMAA to co-host a workshop. The goals are to give the public valuable information about how we acequia communities may be more resilient in the face of climate change and urban population growth and to hold a larger conversation.

The co-authors/researchers will be presenting their individual chapters spanning from hydrology to sociology to system dynamics to range science and more. This is truly a large and striking contribution to the acequia body of work,” said Adrienne Rosenberg, editor of the book.
