From the Durango Telegraph (Missy Votel): "Next week, the Colorado Water Conservation Board's Southwest Basin Roundtable will be holding scoping meetings throughout Southwest Colorado. The public meetings are an effort to gauge nonconsumptive water needs throughout the state, particularly those related to the environment and recreation.

"'We are trying to find out the areas that are important for recreation and the environment,[per thou] said Chuck Wanner, a member of the Water Conservation Board's Nonconsumptive Uses Subcommittee. 'We are looking to local people to tell us where and at what time of year flows are important, and for what purpose.'"

We hope it's not all preachy about tearing up the Colorado River Compact like the book Dead Pool. Arizona, Nevada and California have plenty of water but they'll need to keep drying up agriculture to water the population. That's what is happening in Colorado.

Meanwhile California and Nevada are slipping back into drought, according to this report from Water Secrets Blog.

From the Denver Post (Mark Jaffe): "New and pending oil-shale development rules and leases for new fields -- pushed through during the final days of the Bush administration -- are candidates for review and perhaps overhaul, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Tuesday. 'Moving forward with commercial regulations for oil-shale development is premature,' Salazar said in an interview Tuesday. 'We are going to take a look at all the midnight actions of the Bush administration and see what needs to be changed and which are OK.'"
