The Latest News on Water Wells
By KATHY GILLESPIE

To those interested in the proposal to drill water wells on the canyon rims in White Rock and Pajarito Acres:

The Los Alamos County Council will meet at 7 p.m., Aug. 20 at the White Rock Fire Station on N.M. 4. It will be a working session and public comments will be allowed. One of the topics is the San Juan/Chama water allocation. A good turnout at this meeting will be a sign that the subject of water well drilling in residential areas is still of concern to many people.

During this summer, a group of people who have been involved in opposition to the Department of Public Utilities Plan, prepared by consultant CDM Smith, have met to write a White Paper explaining issues and alternative proposals that were not sufficiently addressed in the study.

Last week this White Paper was sent to the County Council members, the County Administrator, the DPU and the DPU Board. We now want to make this paper available to all interested parties. Feel free to share it with others.
