Bayview Irrigation District No. 11, along with sixteen other U.S. irrigation districts and twenty-eight individuals, all of which purportedly own rights to use a portion of the waters of the Rio Grande River and its tributaries, filed a notice of arbitration against Mexico under the ICSID Additional Facility Rules. Claimants allege that between 1992 and 2002, Mexico captured, seized, and diverted irrigation water to the use of Mexican farmers, depriving claimants of their water rights. Claimants assert these measures taken by Mexico violate NAFTA Articles 1102, 1105(1) and 1110. Claimants seek damages in the approximate amount of $320,124,350 to $667,687,930.
