I'm not so sure Dub Williams was the chief mover behind the study and the funding. The legislature's real water expert was former rep Joe Stell, HD 54 (incumbent is now Gray).

Wow, just checked my total precipitation for the year to date, it is 24.72 inches here outside Cloudcroft. Yep, the Sacramento mountains do serve this whole area!

Flying over Arizona, New Mexico & Texas to see the beautiful Rio Grande will answer your questions and I can't for the life of me understand why money speaks so well. The Rio Grande is bottle-necked in Scottsdale to enable a marina there. I saw bottle-necked practices from Arizona to New Mexico in many places. Any wonder why there is a lack of water? Well go ahead, let people poo all over you and keep your mouths shut and no make waves.

Isn't that the Colorado River in Arizona? Rio Grande flows from S. Rockies in S. Colorado through New Mexico and Texas then into Mexico.

The Rio Grande river does not flow through Scottsdale. The Colorado river flows into Lake Mead (Hoover Dam) and then into California.
There is an aquaduct in Scottsdale; maybe to you that looks like a river from the air.

Joe Stell was, indeed, the water expert in the legislature, and he was most helpful in giving us the chance to make our case for funding for the hydrology study. In mentioning Dub williams, I didn't mean to slight Representative Stell or, indeed, any of the other legislators who have been so supportive of the hydrogeology study. There are a great many people who contributed along the way, and to all of them I say "Thanks."
