From the Wet Mountain Tribune (Nora Drenner):

All interested persons are invited to provide input during two upcoming public hearings regarding a water augmentation plan that the Upper Arkansas Water Conservancy District is proposing to bring to the county. Both public hearings will take place Wednesday, June 17. The first one is slated for 1 p.m. in the Custer County courthouse. A second public hearing will be held at 6 p.m. in the Wetmore fire station…

Local UAWCD board members Bob Senderhauf and Bill Donley have also been invited to address the group and will be prepared to answer questions. The purpose of the public hearings is to seek input from the community. UAWCD officials gave an overview of the proposed water augmentation plan late last month. At that time, UAWCD manager Terry Scanga and UAWCD engineer Ivan Walters indicated the plan would be submitted to water court by June 30. New Colorado regulations regarding the filing of water cases goes into effect July 1.
