This initiation of adjudication procedures is the Commission's second such action under the Water Rights district court should occur by 1972. For more than 40 years, confusion has surrounded the. legal right to -divert and use public water in Texas because of claims under riparian rights, certified filings, permits, prescription and grants by Spain, Mexico and the Republic of Texas. Water lawyers and engineers have argued for/ years over the validity off--some 'of these claims. made available, as a convenience, with the County Clerk's office in the County Courthouses as follows: Del Rio in Val Verde County, Alpine in Brewster County, Marfa in Presidio County, Sierra Blanco in Hudspeth County, Laredo in Webb County, Edinburg in Hidalgo County. , Announcement of the completion of t. he investigations and publication of the report was made Friday by the Texas Water Rights Commission consisting of Otha F. Dent, chairman, Joe D. Carter, commissioner, and Leslie R. Neal, commissioner. The initial Adjudication Order for this reach of the Rio Grande was signed Feb. 22, 1971. The complete report consists of a 270-page book and a was that Grande below Amistad Dam extending downstream to Falcon Dam. The area to be adjudicated in this second procedure includes all or parts of Val Verde, Terrell, Pecos, Brewster, Presidio, Jeff Davis, Culberson and Hudspeth Counties. Doresey B. Hardeman, executive director of the Commission, stated that the order begins the legal procedure to obtain a final determination of the validity and amount of each claim of right to use water from the Rio Grande and its tributaries within the counties named. Under the new law, the Water Rights Commission conducts hearings and enters a final determination of water rights. The final determination SSS'^SS -» S^XTSSS&SJ Additional ,™-.. copies of the written report together with in the area of the adjudication. This automatic appeal to the Court, had been in progress for, more than 14 years in the courts. Estimates of the cost of this suit would probably exceed $10 million. The new law provides for adjudication of -water rights by this Commission which procedure will avoid much of this time and cost. The next step in these adjudication proceedings will be for the Commission to give certified mail notice to each user of water in the area of the deadline to file his claim for the right to use water. This notice will also be published in those counties having newspapers whose water rights are subject to adjudication; namely, Val Verde, Terrell, Pecos, Brewster, Presidio, Jeff Davis, Culberson and Hudspeth, Public hearings to receive evidence will begin after notice and the filing of claims. The Commission has indicated that hearings should begin in the hear future, and will be conducted in towns convenient to parties to the adjudication. _.-• Takes Heavy Toll if • ^ ' <" * © 1971 by NEA, Inc.'
