The public is invited to come learn about water issues facing Colorado, the Gunnison River Basin and Grand Mesa's Surface Creek Valley at two upcoming meetings. The meetings, organized by the Grand Mesa Water Conservancy District with the support of the Water Center at Colorado Mesa University, are free to the public.
The same presentation will be made Tuesday, Jan. 29, at the Orchard City Town Hall, and again on Thursday, Jan. 31, at the Cedaredge Community Center. The program will be from 7-9 p.m. both nights.
Speakers will talk on local and statewide water supply challenges and initiatives to address them, and explain the roles and activities of local water providers and managers.
The program includes "Negotiating our water future in Colorado and the Gunnison Basin" by the Gunnison Basin Roundtable and Water Center at Colorado Mesa University; explanations of the roles of the Colorado Division of Water Resources, the Grand Mesa Water Users Association, and the Grand Mesa Water Conservancy District; and a supply outlook from local water providers (including Dan Hawkins, Upper Surface Creek Domestic Water Users Association; Dave Smith, Town of Cedaredge; Mike Morgan, Town of Orchard City; and Buckley Peterson, Colby Domestic Water).blog comments powered by Disqus
