Made a few phone calls found out Roswell water supply getting low.
I asked a hydrologist what is going on he explain it to me, if you have a saturated sponge, dry one corner of that sponge, it will affects the whole sponge it will dry up, the water table is like a sponge.
Then I asked him about oil fields and the drought, he laughed don't get me involved in that, I need my job.

I was at the meeting. The New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission (NMISC) is pumping water from the Seven Rivers Augmentation Well Field to make sure Senior water rights holders get the majority of the available water after TX gets their compact mandated allotments.
Since they started pumping in the Seven Rivers field a whole lot of wells have gone dry. Of the attendees(45-50) at the meeting 16-17 wells have gone dry. Many more are severely lowered.
The meeting did little to calm water loss fears. The NMISC and State Engineering Dept acted if they were not aware of all the "Water Well Issues" that attendees were complaining about. Taxpayer's are paying just under 2 million bucks per budget year to have their water wells depleted.
The meeting was chaotic and un-organized from the start. People were trying to talk over each other and really no questions where given answers.
If you have a water well in Eddy county you better start making some noise.
