This is the stunning, unique and precious Rio Chama Watershed, New Mexico

Bepuwaveh, Bienvenidos, Welcome

Who are Rio Arriba Concerned Citizens?

We are a grassroots organization that defends against Oil and Gas development in the Rio Chama Watershed, NM while educating and advocating for sustainable, safe energy and income sources in our region.

Our Considerations Are:

  • To inform and educate our community on current issues that affect public health, safety, land, air and water quality in the Rio Chama Watershed.
  • To promote the Rio Chama Watershed as a model for sustainable development and renewable energy.
  • To stand for the “Frontier District” as designated in the Rio Arriba County Oil and Gas Ordinance (2009). This district is east of the Continental Divide and home of the Rio Chama Watershed.
  • To maintain a relationship with Federal, State, and County decision-makers to provide information and education concerning Oil and Gas development and promoting Green Energy to the wider community.

Keep up with the latest environmental and sustainability news affecting our Watershed, region and the wider world via our Facebook stream.
