In the mountain climate between Bayfield and Pagosa Springs, farmer Matt Brewer plans to harvest 400 to 600 of pounds of leafy greens each week from just one of his aquaponic greenhouses this summer. At Chimney Rock Farms on the Piedra River, Brewer has built two commercial-scale aquaponic greenhouses that house fish tanks and thousands of square feet of troughs w
Southwestern Colorado’s rivers are unique in that many of the rivers and tributaries flow from north to south and are administered as independent river systems. This is due to the fact that many, such as the Navajo, Blanco, Piedra, Pine, Florida, Animas, La Plata, and Mancos Rivers, are tributary to the San Juan River in New Mexico or just upstream of the state line.
Fire crews continued to work mostly within the perimeter of the Little Sand Fire near Pagosa Springs on Monday and built firelines along U.S. Forest Service Road 639. The problems were manageable considering what firefighters are dealing with in southwestern New Mexico. The goal is to keep the fire where it is – north of the Piedra River near Pagosa Springs.

Members of the board of the La Plata-Archuleta Water District looked to see if residents were willing to pay for rural water needs in the face of countywide growth Thursday night at a public meeting
Voters by a slim margin approved the creation of the La Plata Archuleta Water District, which aims to establish a rural water system where residents currently depend on wells or trucked-in water. The district covers primarily southeast La Plata County.
Arguments for and against a rural domestic water system were presented to Pine River Rotary Club members on July 23. The district is needed because water wells in many part of the county depend on traditional flood irrigation for re-charge.
