Long DescriptionEvery society must have a system for capturing, storing, and distributing water, a system encompassing both technology and a rationale for the division of this finite resource. Today, people around the world face severe and growing water scarcity, and everywhere this vital resource is ceasing to be a right and becoming a commodity. The acequia or irrigation ditch associations of Taos, Río Arriba, Mora, and other northern New Mexico counties offer an alternative. Few northern New Mexicans farm for a living anymore, but many still gather to clean the ditches each spring and irrigate fields and gardens with the water that runs through them. Increasingly, ditch associations also go to court to defend their water rights against the competing claims brought by population growth, urbanization, and industrial or resort development. Their insistence on the traditional “sharing of waters” offers a solution to the current worldwide water crisis.

By claiming your products, you gain a great deal of control over your products and company information. When you make changes, they don't need to be verified manually and other users cannot make any changes to your data.

Claiming your products is a rather simple process but it does involve a few steps. You simply need to give us a list of your products but then you need to verify your claim by entering a code we send to your email.

You also get to enter information about your company on the claim page. If you have multiple companies, you can control them all on your profile page once they are verified.

After you make your initial claim, we perform some processing on our side. Once the claim process is complete, you get full control over all of your products and company information. You get to control your product details and images. You can modify the contact information for your company and upload a company logo.

To get started with the process, you can search for one of your products and click the CLAIM link found at the bottom of the product information block. You can also go directly to the CLAIM PAGE. Once on that page, simply follow the on screen instructions to complete the claim process.

If you want to send us data about your products instead of simply claiming existing products or entering new information by hand, you can always send us a data file and we can import it for you.
