In April, HCCA agreed to participate as a member of an ad hoc committee formed by the Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District (UGRWCD) to determine how to conduct environmental and irrigation infrastructure inventory assessments in the Upper Gunnison Basin. The formation of the ad hoc committee will further the UGRWCD’s 2016 assessment goals and will guide the process of collecting the foundational information necessary to launch a stream management planning process in the East River Watershed. Other members of the committee include board members from the UGRWCD, members of the Stockgrowers Association, and a representative from Trout Unlimited.
