From the Montrose Daily Press:

Streamflow conditions, reservoir operations and an exploration of the critical decisions facing the Gunnison River Basin and its tributaries will be discussed at the annual Gunnison State of the River meeting set for 7 p.m., Monday at the Holiday Inn Express, 1391 Townsend Ave. in Montrose.

The public meeting is an annual event of the Colorado River District and is presented as an opportunity for the public to learn about this year’s snow melt season and critical water supply issues for the long-term.

The keynote presentation will be a Gunnison Basin Roundtable discussion of “Looking Ahead Water-Wise: the Statewide Water Supply Investigation as It Relates to the Gunnison Basin.” The investigation looms large as the Gunnison Basin comes to terms with its own water supply needs and the fact that some in the state believe the basin has a role in solving statewide water challenges.

Additionally, Eric Kuhn, general manager of the Colorado River District, will detail a historic proposed agreement in the Colorado Basin that balances the water supply and environmental needs of the West Slope against Denver Water’s quest for new water supply.
