A picture named arkansasbasinalluvialaquifersubregions.jpg

From the La Junta Tribune Democrat (Bette McFarren):

Kevin Karney welcomed the group, which was small but deeply concerned with water issues. He then turned over the moderator’s duties to Professor Perry Cabot of Colorado State University, a man of many farm and water projects, some funded by the Colorado Water Conservancy through the Arkansas Valley Roundtable. All of the projects underway from the roundtable are referred to during the presentation as IPP’s (Identified Projects and Processes)…

Bill Wargate of the Applegate group also addressed the gathering. He predicts a gross gap for each provider. The factors are summer homes in Chaffee and Fremont counties, the Telluride-Victor mines, Custer County, Round Mountain, and a big change in El Paso County. The gap for El Paso County is 22,600 acre- feet.
