|State Eng. Issues Meter Order For Ft. Sumner |
State Engineer Scott Verhines will issue a Metering Order for the Fort Sumner Underground Water Basin this month. The Order requires that meters are installed on all irrigation, municipal and industrial wells before January 1, 2014.Metering irrigation, municipal and industrial wells provides a practical, measurable action to protect against illegal use of water, using more water than is permitted through a water right, and the opportunity to identify water lost to leaks. This important water management step also provides data on how much groundwater is being pumped from the aquifer. These meters will serve the public by allowing the State Engineer to conjunctively mange the groundwater of the Fort Sumner Underground Water basin that is hydrologically connected to the surface waters of the Lower Pecos River Stream System in order to maximize the beneficial use of the available water supply in the Lower Pecos River.

|Roswell Police Report Scam |
Every day the Roswell Police Department (RPD) receives a multitude of phone calls regarding various issues. For the past three months the Desk Officer (Officer who works in the Office) at the RPD has received approximately 10 – 15 phone calls regarding individuals falsifying themselves as law enforcement Officers. The fictitious Officers are attempting to collect debts in various cities in New Mexico. The most recent call was from a man in who lives in a small New Mexico town. The man stated he received a call, which appeared as 575-624-6770 (the number which belongs to RPD), and the individual on the other line falsely introduced himself as Roswell Police Department Officer trying to collect a debt. In this case, as in all previous instances, the caller has a foreign accent and is extremely aggressive in the demands made for account information, such as checking account-credit card account information.The caller or callers has even threatened New Mexico residents if compliance is not made the resident will be arrested by local authorities.The Roswell Police Department wants to reassure citizens that the Police Department will never call to collect a debt, nor ask for credit card information.An Officer will never arrest a person for a debt which has not been paid, unless a bench warrant has been issued by the Court. It is recommended to not give out personal information,such as bank account, or credit card information.No city or town is exempt from the scam.
