Colorado Water Conservation Board seeks public input

A Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) committee will hold vital public gatherings in Southwest Colorado, beginning Feb. 2. In the process, the group will solicit valuable citizen input on environmental and recreational water uses within the Southwest Basin.

According to a recent notice from the Southwest Basin Roundtable — one of eight such roundtables in Colorado — its Southwest Nonconsumptive Needs Assessment Committee will assemble for two hours on four consecutive evenings, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 2, at the Pagosa Springs Community Center. Subsequent events will take place in Cortez, Telluride and Durango.

For more information on the Pagosa Springs meeting, or exact times and locations of those in Cortez, Telluride or Durango, contact Pete Kasper at 970-264-4241. Kasper is the lead water commissioner in the Pagosa Springs office of the state Division of Water Resources. Hecox is available at (303) 866-3441, ext. 3217.
