The Colorado River Basin is currently experiencing its driest 14-year period in more than 100 years of historical records. While the outlook could change significantly if the watershed were to have a good snowpack this coming winter, the basin needs to be prepared for continuing drought.
Colorado River water supply issues as well as restoration efforts along the river in Yuma will be discussed at the next public meeting of the Colorado River Citizens Forum at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Yuma County Development Services, Aldrich Hall, 2351 W. 26th St.
I'm guessing that citizens forum session was cancelled, called on account of flash floods that have already left 4 dead and 172 missing.
It's being called a once in a hundred year flood.
