  • Court: No reserved water rights for New Mexico trust land

    By Barry Massey
    Santa Fe, New Mexico (AP)

    There are no federally reserved water rights for the millions of acres of state trust land in New Mexico, the state Court of Appeals has ruled.

    In an important case involving water law in the West, the court rejected claims made by the State Land Office that a federal legal doctrine reserved water rights for lands granted to New Mexico by the federal government when it became a territory and then a state.
