About the Southwest Basin Roundtable
Nine basin roundtables were established to represent each of Colorado’s eight major river basins and the Denver metropolitan area. Together, the basin roundtables bring more than 300 citizens representing diverse interests including recreation, environmental, agricultural, industrial and domestic water needs.
At their quarterly meetings in either Durango or Cortez, 40 members of our local roundtable come from all over southwestern Colorado to provide input into the water plan, arrive at consensus on difficult issues, and approve state funding for area projects.
The public is welcome to attend to meet the roundtable members and get educated about timely water management efforts in the region. For more information about the Roundtable, please contact Chairperson Mike Preston at 970-565-7562.
