The New Mexico State Engineer made a decision Tuesday to deny an application submitted by Augustin Plains Ranch LLC.
The Cibola National Forest, Magdalena Ranger District is planning a prescribed burn to help improve wildlife habitat and forest health. The burn is expected to begin in the next two weeks and will continue until completed, depending on weather and fuel conditions.
Now is the time to start thinking about preparing for emergencies, according to Magdalena Trustee Diane Allen.
At the Oct. 17 Village Board meeting, Allen said with colder weather approaching it is imperative that residents know their options in the event of periods of extremely cold temperatures.

It’s been four years since someone happened to spot a legal notice in the paper: an application from the Augustin Plains Ranch, LLC to the State Engineer for permission to drill 37 rather hefty water wells out in the San Augustin Plains. The plan was to extract 54,000 acre-feet of ground water per year.
