NEW MEXICO SHOULD GOVERN ITS WATER RESOURCE MORE LIKE A COMMONS AND LESS LIKE A MARKET COMMODITY

Conventional wisdom asserts that what is needed to ensure that water is allocated to its highest and best uses is for governments to “get out of the way” and allow markets to function efficiently. That approach doesn’t seem to be working well for New Mexico’s future, for reasons discussed below. How we govern our water becomes particularly critical in the context of looming disruptive impacts of climate change on our sources of supply. This essay proposes an alternative: to think of our water resource as a commons, and govern it accordingly.

New Mexico Water Dialogue 21st Annual Statewide Meeting

New Mexico has suffered through years of extreme drought, followed by a summer of greater but uneven rains—not enough, however, to equal average annual rainfall, or to replenish storage. El Niño, recently thought to be strengthening, remains weak. Updating regional water plans that were completed between 1999 and 2008 is now underway. The basic challenge remains the same: to close the gap between supply and demand. But with drought, warming, and greater unpredictability as the likely "new normal," it may be that there will just be less water to meet aggregate demand. If so, New Mexicans will need to identify the associated economic, environmental, social and cultural vulnerabilities and learn together how to live with less water.
