The meeting is open to the public and is scheduled for 6:30-8:30 p.m. Sept. 16 at the Gary DeSoto Community Center, 1120 Pawnee Ave. in Sterling. Landowners, agencies, organizations, businesses and residents are invited to discuss water quality concerns and priorities for managing natural and agricultural resources in the Lower South Platte basin. State Rep. Jerry Sonnenberg, R-Sterling, has been invited to speak on the importance of water quality to the economic viability of the entire watershed.

The watershed planning project, funded by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Water Quality Control Division through the Colorado Nonpoint Source Program, will encompass an estimated 3.45 million acres from Greeley north and east to the Colorado-Nebraska state line and all or portions of nine smaller tributary watersheds within the planning area.
