Save the Gila River
More New Mexicans oppose diverting the Gila River than support it. Most agree that a diversion will negatively impact our pocketbook, wildlife and the Gila River itself. Urge elected officials to reject a diversion and pipeline. There is money for less expensive, long-term, local solutions that give us local control over the use of our water.
