The Bureau of Reclamation is hosting this public meeting at the Dolores Community Center, April 18th 7-9 pm, to discuss the potential managed release for 2019. They will review their operations from 2018 and lay out a prediction of their plan for this year. Come hear about what a release may look like this year and how the BOR does their forecasting.

The meeting will include panel members from American Whitewater, Dolores River Boating Advocates, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, BLM, and Fort Lewis College. The panel will discuss the downstream goals for the environment and recreation.

There will be some specific questions for boaters to provide feedback on, so please come share your thoughts! This is a great opportunity to engage directly with water managers, learn more about how Dolores River water management works, and be part of the conversation on the Dolores.
