From the Steamboat Pilot & Today (Mike Lawrence):

Local staff of U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-CO, will join representatives from the Colorado Rural Water Association, the Rural Com munity Assistance Corpor­ation and the U.S. Department of Agriculture from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday, at Centennial Hall on 10th Street, to provide information about funding and technical assistance for water systems…

“Our water and wastewater program has significant funding,” said Pattie Snidow, Northwest Colorado’s area director for the USDA’s rural development programs. “I think the effort is to get the word out and let people know there is funding available to them.” Snidow said programs she will discuss at Wednesday’s workshop benefit domestic water providers serving populations of 10,000 or less. She said her office is working with the town of Oak Creek, for example, on improvements to its wastewater system.
