Water talk set for March 31

The Ruedi Water and Power Authority will host a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. March 31 at the Eagle County Building in El Jebel.

The authority will review and take public comment on the regional water efficiency plan, which the authority has developed in cooperation with major water suppliers in the Roaring Fork Valley.

The plan includes a number of recommendations aimed at improving coordination among jurisdictions, establishing partnerships and developing consistent policies toward water use and conservation.

Recommendations include the development of a valleywide education program aimed at wise water use and regular meetings between representatives of major water providers to share information and discuss issues in common. The plan, which is likely to be advisory, will be brought to the water suppliers for formal adoption over the next several months.

The draft water efficiency plan is available for review at rfregionl-draft-pubrev-20150309/.
