The  land was farmed and pastures were connected by a  blood life line of water ways called acequias. Today the participants still share the water for  fees and  physical maintenance of  cleaning the ditches of obstructions. Water rights determine the set days and  amount of  water given to a land owner  to help irrigate their crops. It is an old practiced way that is vital to grow our food.
