The Water Advocates' predecessor organization, the Middle Rio Grande Water Assembly, led the MRG Regional Water Planning from 1997 to 2004 and pursued its implementation of that Plan from then to 2017.  In the two decade process, they developed an extensive archive of MRG-related and other water information and placed it on their website.  You can find that information at WaterAssembly.org.
