Conservation Projects

From 1934 to 2005, the PVACD has plugged
1,529 wells in the Roswell-Artesian Basin.

These wells were plugged for the express purpose of
preserving the Artesian waters.

From 1958 to present, the PVACD
has borrowed $20 million from the New Mexico
Interstate Streams Commission for re-loan
conservancy projects within the Basin.

Some of these projects include:

31 miles of concrete ditch lining

3,355+ acres of land leveling

432 complete side rolls

202 center-pivot irrigation systems

2,530 acres of drip system

329.55 miles of low head PVC pipe

18.3 miles of gated pipe

30.57 miles of underground pipe

Other miscellaneous irrigation and surge systems
