January 12, 2022 – The El Paso County Board of Commissioners is seeking community-minded citizen volunteers to serve on the Arkansas Basin Roundtable. Applications for the open positions are due by January 27, 2022.

The Arkansas Basin Roundtable consists of representatives from every county in the Arkansas River basin. Members include municipal, agricultural, environmental, recreational, industrial interests as well as holders of adjudicated water rights. While meeting the water resource needs of all water users within the Arkansas basin, projects supported by the Roundtable also support accomplishing the goals of the Arkansas Basin Implementation Plan (Ark BIP) and the Colorado Water Plan (CWP). The Roundtable serves as a forum for discussion of regional and local water issues and provides proponents of water projects the opportunity to gain support, secure funding, and partner with other stakeholders to implement projects that are aligned with the Roundtable’s goals.

The Arkansas Basin Roundtable is currently seeking one volunteer.

Meetings are typically held on the second Wednesday of every month from 12:30-2:30.
