Done Deal? Rio Grande battle between Texas and New Mexico may finally resolve

After a decade-long battle between Texas and New Mexico, there may be a water deal in sight for the Rio Grande.

If allowed by the Supreme Court, the new system will manage the division of water, offering a new set of borders to what water is owned where. A key change to the document includes transfers of water between New Mexico and Texas irrigation districts.

A commission made up of reps from Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas will help enforcement.

The Rio Grande provides water to more than 2 million acres of land in both the U.S. and Mexico.
