Actions you can take to reject the proposed desired future conditions and change the course groundwater management in our counties.
We urge you to object to these polices and the proposed new desired future conditions (DFCs) by writing the Board President and board members of the groundwater conservation district where you reside demanding that they put a stop to these unreasonable management policies. Ask them to reject the proposed new DFC’s and send them back for revision. Require the Districts to re-adopt the currently adopted DFCs until such time as they can agree to solutions that better protect landowners and the environment by adopting more balanced policies and by installing the monitoring wells needed to verify impacts on our aquifers, rivers and streams.
Revised desired future conditions must be based on sustainable management of aquifers, protection of exempt domestic and livestock wells, and sustaining the ecological resilience that enables the Colorado River to bounce back after a serious drought.
Keep in mind that the Board of Directors of each GCD are the final decision-makers in these matters.
GENERAL GUIDELINES: We recommend that you
1) put “Proposed DFCs” in the subject line,
2) address your letter to the Board President,
3) write your email or letter in your own words using the information above and from our WaterDefenders.org Coalition, and
4) copy the General Manager and General Information email address on emails sent to the Board President. The office address and telephone number is also provided for your convenience if you want to write, mail, or hand deliver your comments.
Other information, such as the names of the board members and staff, may be found on the GCD’s website.
