A project that will analyze water demands and create a planning framework for future infrastructure improvements on the North Fork of the Gunnison River is now underway.
This undertaking is the result of collaboration between Trout Unlimited, North Fork Water Conservancy District and Western Slope Conservation Center. All of these groups hope to produce a planning document that can help guide water projects on the North Fork in the years to come.
A conceptual plan for development of the Gunnison River corridor east from Confluence Park generated a great deal of excitement when it was unveiled last week. When -- and if -- fully implemented, the plan would clearly run into the millions and would require the purchase or acquisition of right-of-way along both sides of the river. But as a "vision" with no price tags attached, the concept appeared to have the support of most of those gathered to hear a presentation from the engineering firm contracted to complete the study.
A two-mile stretch of the Gunnison River between Confluence and Cottonwood parks has been the subject of a study intended to spur economic development in the Delta area. Community members are invited to preview a conceptual draft of the study and to provide feedback Thursday, June 9, at Bill Heddles Recreation Center.
