The Appel award is designed to honor an individual who has over the years demonstrated commitment to improving the condition of the Arkansas River as it flows from its headwaters near Leadville to the Kansas state line. The award is meant to recognize someone who has helped to promote the best management practices in the usage of water in the Arkansas River basin. Their efforts may include contributions in the general areas of development, preservation, conservation or leadership…
