MRGCD Basin Study Stakeholder Meetings

posted in: News | 0

mrgcd-busness-card-ad-nov-2016The Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District has received a grant from the United States Bureau of Reclamation to put together a proposal to conduct a basin study in the Middle Rio Grande Basin from the Colorado State line to Elephant Butte Reservoir. This study will look to holistically account for water supply and demand in the Middle Rio Grande (MRG). A MRG basin study will utilize state of the art models to project future supply and demand and how existing infrastructure will respond to the projected conditions. There will also be development of adaptation strategies to mitigate projected imbalances as well as a trade-off analysis of these proposed strategies. As the intention of this project is to be inclusive of all MRG water stakeholders, we are holding public outreach meetings throughout the basin to present what a basin study is and what the benefits of participation are. The four meetings will be held at:

The Socorro County Annex Building, Conference room 198 Neel Avenue Socorro, NM December 6th 1-3pm

Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District, Board Room 1931 2nd St. SW Albuquerque, NM
