Aamodt Water Rights Settlement

Order to Show Cause and Forms

In December 2013 the Court commenced an expedited inter se proceeding to determine whether to approve the Settlement Agreement and enter the proposed Partial Final Judgment and Decree on Pueblos’ Water Rights according to the terms of the Settlement Agreement. It entered an Order to Show Cause and Notice of Proceeding to Approve Settlement which in January 2014 was published and also served by mail on almost 6,000 persons who may have claims to water rights in the Pojoaque Basin. The Order to Show Cause requires that all water right claimants in the Pojoaque Basin be given the opportunity to review the Settlement Agreement and the proposed determination of the Pueblos’ water rights and decide whether to accept or object to the Settlement Agreement and to the proposed Partial Final Judgment and Decree on Pueblos’ Water Rights. The deadline for filing an Acceptance or an Objection form with the Court is April 7, 2014.
