Town Hall Meeting on CO Water Plan Thursday

Thursday, March 27th
Eagle Valley “Town Hall” Meeting on the Colorado Water Plan
 
6 to 8 pm 
@ Walking Mountains Science Center, Avon
Did you know that Colorado is one of only a few states in the West operating without a formal water plan? As of May 2013, that is changing. Gov. Hickenlooper has asked to have a draft of the State’s Water Plan on his desk in December of 2014 with the final completed in December of 2015.
For this process, Colorado has been divided into 9 river basins, each responsible for outlining their values, priorities, goals, and objectives moving forward. Here in the Eagle Valley, we fall into the Colorado River Basin and the draft of our Basin Implementation Plan is due in July. This process seeks much public input; now is the time for you to learn more about the Statewide Water Plan and give your feedback!
Please visit the Colorado Water Plan website to learn more about this exciting & challenging process, and click here to find out more about what’s happening in the Colorado River Basin in particular.
