December 26, 2013--Applicants sought for Colorado River Citizens Forum (Imperial Valley Press)

The U.S. Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission is seeking applications from community members interested in participating in the Colorado River Citizens Forum. The CRCF is intended to bring together community members, enabling the early and continued two-way flow of information, concerns, values, and needs between the USIBWC and the general public, environmentalists, government agencies, irrigation districts, municipalities and other interested parties. The CRCF was established in 2003 to facilitate the exchange of information between the USIBWC and members of the public about commission projects and related activities in Yuma County and Imperial County. Duties and responsibilities include reviewing and commenting on technical documents and activities associated with USIBWC projects in the area. All CRCF board members recently completed their terms so the USIBWC has opened the application process to the general public to select a new board. Incumbent board members who wish to continue their service may apply for re-appointment.
