From the Fort Collins Coloradoan:
The public education sessions will begin today. Who has the right to use the water flowing in the Poudre River? Why is the Poudre streamflow so variable? What are the projections for how much more water will be needed in the future and where will that water come from? What is the role of storage in meeting future water needs? Questions like these will be the subject of three upcoming water education sessions offered free to the public as part of “The Poudre Runs Through It: Northern Colorado’s Water Future.”
The three education sessions will take place today, March 10 and March 24 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Larimer County Courthouse Office Building, 200 W. Oak St. Today’s session will cover Colorado water law, sources and uses of local water, and how our water is managed and regulated.
The second session will cover current and future water needs, as well as Poudre River stream flow and water quality. The third session will cover the topics of water supply, basinwide planning and address the question, “Where will our future water come from?”
