Howdy everybody,
For the past couple of years, I've been involved in the development of an outreach education program designed to get water managers better linked to water users here in Colorado. The Colorado Foundation for Water Education, together with Channel 7 in Denver, and a group called Stormwatch Communications helped make the idea of an interconnected media network for Colorado Water possible. As part of this effort, there is a new message board forum discussion page--much like this one--now available. It's at:

http://forum.stormcenter.com/cgi-bin/den/YaBB.pl


The idea for this message board is for folks to be able to post questions about water issues (river flows, snowpack, water diversions, reservoir operations, etc.) and have actual water management professionals respond to them. The other thought is that water management folks like me could post public meetings, water festivals, board meetings, media events and etc. there so the public could know about them.

The problem is, the site is brand new this year. It's had its kinks worked out, but it's not getting any traffic to speak of. I figured, if I announced it here, some of you folks might spread the word and really help jump start the site so it can become the useful tool we all imagined it could be.

If you do visit, let them know what you think! :wink:
Thanks!
--Kara

Cool Kara! Colorado Foundation for Water Education does some great work! A topic to get traffic going would be a little history of the South Canal, it's quite a piece of engineering.

By any chance are you working on this with Tanya H. from CFWE?

Getting some starter questions or topics going might help. I just went and there is not yet a single post to view.

To start things, you could post your updates for the Blue or whatever there and then when you post the topic here on the buzz, make folks follow a link to it instead of just reading the info here.

Thanks, Dave

kara- great idea! this site will be very useful for us Buzzards...particularily come next spring.

I think you should follow Dave Frank's advice and post all your great updates on the new forum and just post the link here on the Buzz.

Thanks for all that you do for us!

Thanks for the comments. There is some good advice in there and I will follow it.

I think I will also post the new RICD on the Arkansas on the new water forum and see what happens.

Best,
Kara
