Utton Center Hosts Mexican Farmers

A group of farmer-irrigators from Delicias, a 200,000-acre irrigation district in Chihuahua, Mexico, spent two days visiting with farmers along the Rio Grande in New Mexico as part of an exchange that began last year when New Mexico farmer-irrigators traveled to Mexico to see Delicias' state-of-the-art water conservation techniques.

The Mexican visitors traveled to farms from Alcalde to Peralta, and in Albuquerque, Joe Chwirka with the City of Albuquerque, showed them the new dam and pumping facilities for the city's water reclamation project. Aimee Gonzales, a 3L, served as interpreter.

The Utton Transboundary Resources Center organized the visit, which was sponsored by the New Mexico-Chihuahua Commission Water Work Table, a cross-border panel in which the two states work together on water issues.
