Meetings to update public on waters

SUMMIT COUNTY – Two State of the River public forums on water management on the Colorado River will be held in Grand and Summit counties in early May.  

The annual meetings are sponsored by the Colorado River Water Conservation District to give the public the opportunity to hear and address representatives of organizations that manage water in the Colorado River Basin.  

Agencies attending include Denver Water, the Bureau of Reclamation, the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District, the Bureau of Land Management, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Colorado River Water Conservation District and others.  

The Grand County meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. May 7 in the conference area at the Inn at Silver Creek in Granby.

Summit County’s program will be at 6:30 p.m. May 8 at the Summit County Community and Senior Center near Frisco.

Among issues to be discussed are reservoir operations at Green Mountain, Granby, Dillon, Wolford and Williams Fork; river flow levels on the Blue, Upper Colorado and Fraser; and bypass flows and other management matters that affect domestic water use, recreation, fish and irrigation.
