Acequia users appeared before the City Council last week to ask that the city come to the table to negotiate an agreement that would end the decades-long litigation over the Gallinas River.
“We have been in litigation for many, many years. I’ve been involved for 57 years...,” said Gabe Estrada, one of the acequia users. “What have we accomplished? Zero. Enough is enough. Ya basta. People, we need to stop that litigation immediately and start negotiating.”
