The Plains of San Agustin have been designated a "Most Endangered Place" by the New Mexico Heritage Preservation Alliance, a statewide, private, nonprofit historic preservation organization. As an honorific listing, it does not create additional responsibilities or rewards for an individual or organizations interested in or involved with the resource in question. The list was designed to bring attention to historic, cultural and natural resources (such as the state's water supply) that are endangered in some way and to encourage concerned individuals and organizations to develop methods for protecting those resources. Since 1999, the alliance has annually requested nominations to its Most Endangered Places list. Their annual meeting is April 11-13 at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales.
