Here’s the release from the Douglas County Water Authority:

A group of area water entities has come together to complete regional water infrastructure planning efforts.

The pursuit will utilize the considerable work performed to date by members of the S. Metro Water Supply Authority to complete regional water infrastructure planning in the region, and move on to analysis of regional economics and financial considerations of water solutions in the Douglas County area.

The goal of the effort is to complete planning and then identify private, state, and federal options to fund construction of a regional water project. The process is scheduled to run through February 2012, and will include opportunities for public participation and comment.

The process began in April with a series of seven public listening sessions held at local libraries in the area.
