About Us

Rio Grande MapThe mission of the Sangre de Cristo Acequia Association is to preserve acequias as the core social, political, and economic institution of the Rio Culebra, Costilla, San Antonio, Los Pinos, and Conejos watersheds and to protect the water rights and unique governance structures that will ensure the viability of the acequia system, and the rich ecology, heritage, and food production it supports, for generations to come.

The Sangre de Cristo Acequia Association (SCAA) is a 501(c)3 organization representing over 73 acequias, which in turn support approximately 300 families.  Our office is located in the town of San Luis, Colorado.
