The location of said move-from land is approximately one-half mile west of the intersection of State Route 304 and north of Las Nutrias Road, Socorro County, New Mexico. The applicants further propose to transfer the described 3.906 acre-feet per annum consumptive use water rights to the City of Rio Rancho's vested and permitted wells described under Permit No. RG-6745 et al., consisting of 35 system production wells, all located within the city metropolitan area in Sandoval County, for municipal use within the service area of the City of Rio Rancho municipal water system, Sandoval County, New Mexico.

No increase in diversion is requested by the transfer of water rights under this application. This application is made for the purpose of complying with Permit No. RG-6745 et al., which requires the City of Rio Rancho to offset the impacts of groundwater pumping on surface flows of the Rio Grande and its tributaries. Under Application No. (RG-6745 et al. into SD-02787-C-E)-T the applicants request that the water rights be retained at their move-from location for a period of ten (10) years upon approval of the transfer by the State Engineer, to include an additional five (5) year term or longer as the parties may agree, subject to approval by the State Engineer, by reason that water rights are not immediately needed for the exercise of Permit No. RG-6745 et al. Any person or other entity shall have standing to file an objection or protest if they object that the granting of the application will: (1) Be detrimental to the objector's water right; or (2) Be contrary to the conservation of water within the state or detrimental to the public welfare of the state, provided that the objector shows how they will be substantially and specifically affected by the granting of the application. A valid objection or protest shall set forth the grounds for asserting standing and shall be legible, signed, and include the complete mailing address of the objector. An objection or protest must be filed with the state engineer not later than 10 calendar days after the date of the last publication of this notice.
