The Water Center at Colorado Mesa University is pleased to announce two exciting opportunities to learn about water in our region: an eight-hour "Water Law in a Nutshell" class on Friday, Sept. 21, and a water tour of the Uncompahgre Valley on Tuesday, Sept. 25. Both events are open to the general public.
Reservoirs are water savings accounts. Largely, they operate to catch snowmelt for use later in the summer–but are big enough to build a nest egg for future drought years.
An informational booklet for all 4-H'ers and FFA kids desiring to participate in the premier exhibitor contests during the fair is now available at the Delta Extension Office, located at 525 Dodge Street, in Delta.
The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Delta County recently announced an application cutoff date of Monday, July 2, in order to be considered for 2013 funding in the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
Submitted eligible applications that are received after July 2 will be considered during a later time and will be processed throughout the fiscal year as needed.
