An article in yesterday's Denver Post discussed the current Statewide Water Supply Initiative (SWSI) which is being done by the Colo. Water Conservation Board (CWCB) to map out how the state will manage its water supplies for the next half century. If you're concerned about the possibiltiy of dam projects flooding your favorite canyon so folks in Denver can grow Kentucky bluegrass in a semi-arid climate, you should get up to speed on the process and provide public comment while you can.
Meeting Info (from Denver Post article):
"Residents of the South Platte River Basin, which includes metro Denver, can learn about an 18-month water-needs assessment and have a say in its outcome during the meeting Wednesday from 2 to 8 p.m. at the Northwest Water Treatment Facility in Westminster, 8995 W. 104th Ave., near Wadsworth Parkway.
After a roundtable discussion by technical experts about water needs in the basin and potential solutions, the public can offer opinions and ideas beginning about 6:30 p.m., said Rick Brown, director of the $2.7 million statewide study."
