Synopsis:

Every society must have a system for capturing, storing, and distributing water, a system encompassing both technology and a rationale for the division of this finite resource. Today, people around the world face severe and growing water scarcity, and everywhere this vital resource is ceasing to be a right and becoming a commodity. The acequia or irrigation ditch associations of Taos, Río Arriba, Mora, and other northern New Mexico counties offer an alternative. Few northern New Mexicans farm for a living anymore, but many still gather to clean the ditches each spring and irrigate fields and gardens with the water that runs through them. Increasingly, ditch associations also go to court to defend their water rights against the competing claims brought by population growth, urbanization, and industrial or resort development. Their insistence on the traditional “sharing of waters” offers a solution to the current worldwide water crisis.

Review: Sylvia Rodriguez deftly integrates the daily labor investments in ditch and field maintenance with the deeply embedded religious rituals necessary for the sanctity of the agricultural landscape.....Scrupulous in her documentation of detail ... she places the study in a global arena.... --Vernon Scarborough, 9/16/07

...a theoretically informed, empirically rigorous, and socially relevant anthropology of water use that overcomes the limits of academic fashion. --Casey Walsh, American Anthropologist, vol. 112, no. 2

...Rodriguez writes a fascinating account of the interaction of water, faith, and landscape in northern New Mexico. Sylvia Rodriguez's Acequia details the historic management of water and its impact on daily life in the Taos Valley.... In addition to this story, which recalls a way of life that dates to Spanish colonial times, she explores the ongoing legal disputes over who owns and controls the life-giving liquid. --Jon Hunner, Western Historical Quarterly Vol. XXXIX, No. 2, Summer 2008
