Acequia Maintenance

Acequia Slide Show

The photo below shows how the Acequia looks when a section of the ditch is well maintained. Unfortunately, a lot of the acequia is not in such nice condition. Over grown trees, cracked concrete, neglect by parciantes, and other damage make for more work and maintenance to keep the water flowing. Karen Martinez created a slide show depicting some of the problem areas along the acequia and the related damages that result. Some of these problems are caused by nature and landscape but some are caused by improper maintenance and obstructions placed along the acequia.
