Wow....this is frustrating.... I just purchased 38 acres in Costilla County and am feeling a little overwhelmed. Who should I contact ....The County Clerks office to find out if I can drill my land? Any help would be greatly appreciated

If it was only you drilling, I'd tell you to keep your mouth shut

Stripping mineral rights from property was a profitable scam because at the time all of the regular people had no clue how to value them, so why not take them for pennies on the dollar and spit on the new home owners?

If you have employees coming and going, it would be really useful to ensure you actually have all the legal paper work.

Exclamation Rights

After 3 years of paying for our land we paid it off. We do have mineral rights and it is stated on the deed. Fantastic news! There's a law that limits your well usage to inside your house if you have less than 35 acres. We plan to set up a grey water system.

To do what? With a Household use permit you cannot irrigate with gray water either. The various entities that hold superior water rights believe they are doing you a favor by letting you use any water at all. The entire point of a Household permit is that they will get the water back - a 90% return rate for septic systems is commonly cited. If you start watering plants or livestock, washing your car, filling an outdoor hot tub, or using water anywhere outside, that water will mostly evaporate away and will be "lost".
