Comments sought on Yampa-White water plan

RBC I Diverse water interests across Colorado are currently working to develop a draft Colorado Water Plan that seeks to balance future agricultural, municipal, recreational and environmental water needs.
The Colorado Water Plan is your plan and your input is needed to make certain the plan reflects your interests, values, and vision for Colorado’s future.

Therefore a public meeting on local interests will be held Sept. 16 in Steamboat Springs for discussion on the Yampa-White River Basin Water Plan.
The Colorado State Legislature wants local feedback on the draft water plan documents as well as on the eight draft basin-specific implementation plans recently submitted.
The Legislature’s Water Resources Review Committee (WRRC) will hold public meetings around the state throughout August and September to gather public input on this critically important plan.
Five state senators and five state representatives who are members of the Colorado Legislature’s Interim Water Resources Review Committee will be in attendance at the meeting as well as the public and public officials from Rio Blanco, Routt and Moffat counties.
The meeting will run from 9 a.m. to noon at the Bud Warner Memorial Library’s Library Hall, 1289 Lincoln Ave. in Steamboat Springs.
For additional information or for questions on the WRRC’s public meetings, please contact the WRRC staff with the Office of Legislative Council: David Beaujon (david.beaujon@ state.co.us) or Brooke Maddaford (brooke.maddaford@state.co.us).
