Rusted Well #5 in Rio Puerco
$6 million Settlement after spending a budget of $10 million and no Accountability.

Information obtained in IPRA request on Sandoval County role as a Public and Private partner with Aperion ReCorp (now IMH Hedge Fund)  and several other shell corporations out of Arizona. These are foreign corporations are now ligating to see who will control the New Mexican water resources Sandoval County gave away.  The market value for the water alone is said to be over $1 Billion.

The cost of the building $87 Million with bonds that the State, Feds, and Sandoval County residents would be responsible for.  But what is worse is to see how this deal was made, who is responsible for it and where do we, citizens, get accountability for money spent and how this water will be sued in the future?  The questionable practices to obtain funding for this project and the implication of corruption, sidestepping administrative rules calls into question the ethics of the administration of Planning and Zoning Director and the current County Manager.

Will we subsidize brine water for fracking and ruining the health of our communities and Drinking water in our Region?
