The Water Information Program is a public information program sponsored by the water districts, organizations and agencies in the San Juan and Dolores watersheds of Southwestern Colorado. The purpose of the WIP is to provide information to the public and community on water topics and water related issues.
Many groups are calling for land-use planning to play a larger role in the Colorado Water Plan, emphasizing that growing cities should incorporate water conservation in their land planning decisions.
The Animas River Stakeholders Group is trying to get citizen participation in advocating for Good Samaritan Legislation via a website Trout Unlimited has set up. Please sign the petition to finally get common-sense legislation to help clean up our rivers!
