NEW MEXICO, Carlsbad SWCD — Judy Bock is fighting for New Mexico’s wildlife by trying to save its water.She’s the district manager of the Carlsbad Soil and Water Conservation District, and works closely with landowners such as Ogden and McCutcheon to identify water- and land-related issues, and find solutions.Bock grew up on a desert ranch, and takes a hard stance on water conservation, developed during a childhood that did not allow the life-sustaining resource to be taken for granted.She worried the fresh water is being unduly used for operations such as hydraulic fracturing, taking away irrigation and drinking water when more brackish options could be available.
