This is what I talked about at the last meeting. This is from Moldy Chum about the New Mexico stream access.

Gov. Susana Martinez has signed into law a measure aimed at strengthening current state regulations restricting the ability of anglers to fish and wade New Mexico waters on private property.
There has been a battle for the removal of this dam for a long time. The dam was built to supply water to San Francisco, but the water was foul tasting. Other articles have stated that Stanford bought it to water their golf course. Now it is 90 % full of silt. Some people have photos of steelhead at the bottom of the dam where they can’t reach spawning grounds. What to do with all this silt? Read the comments for fun. On the Elwah Dam removal they let the silt run out into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. But the Elwah Dam removal is another story you can google "Elwah Dam Removal" to read that story.

The San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board has sent Stanford University a letter saying the agency supports "alternatives that focus on dam removal" as the university moves toward a decision on what to do with Searsville Dam and its reservoir.

Despite clear rights to stream access provided by their state's constitution, upheld halfway through the 20th century by their state Supreme Court and reaffirmed in 2014 by their Attorney General, New Mexicans are about to lose their right to fish their state's public waters thanks to a new piece of legislation that New Mexico governor Susana Martinez is expected to sign into law by the end of this week. As a result, stream access advocates in New Mexico, neighboring Utah and beyond are asking anglers everywhere to send a clear message to the governor that she must use her veto power to put a stop to legislation that would strip the public of its right to recreate on many of its state's waters.
