The Santa Fe Watershed Association & JourneySantaFe present: A Brief History of Acequias in Santa Fe,
With Phil Bové
Hosts: Andy Otto, Alan Webber & Bill Dupuy
Phillip Bové has been a commissioner on the Acequia Madre de Santa Fe since 1983 and on the Santa Fe River Commission since 2009. He lives in Santa Fe with his wife Eleanor of nearly 52 years where they live in the same house on Acequia Madre where she was born. Phil has always been very interested in water from his very early years of building dams on streams and just playing in the water in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Texas and Virginia. Enjoyed two months of sea travel while traveling to and from Korea while serving in the U.S. Army. He enjoys being able to insure that the over 400-year-old Acequia Madre continues to do what it was designed and constructed to do: deliver irrigation water to the Acequia parciantes (members).
