Annual cleaning of Acequia Madre del Sur – Day 2

posted in: Acequia Culture | 0

20140331-135823.jpgToday we clean our Acequia for the second and final day before we bring through the water.  We usually clean the Acequia Madre itself on the first day, but yesterday we actually cleaned our other main ditches known as Acequia del Medio and the Candalaria lateral.  The reason we cleaned our acequias in reverse order this year is that we had some old trees fall into the ditch and we had to get some guys in there with chainsaws to buck the logs and get them out of the way before we brought the peones through.
