The Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District (UGRWCD) is one of four signatories to the Taylor Park Reservoir Operation and Storage Exchange Agreement that was executed in August 1975. This forms the basis under which the release patterns from Taylor Park Reservoir are determined each year.
Each year, the UGRWCD seeks input and direction from local users of the Taylor River, Taylor Park Reservoir, and the main stem of the Gunnison River above Blue Mesa as to how the reservoir operations can best be optimized for private landowners, stream fishery, reservoir fishery, irrigation, and rafting and boating purposes in the upper Gunnison basin.
The Board is seeking to appoint one citizen member to a two-year term on the Local Users Group from the following user group:
- One member representing property interests along the Taylor River below Taylor Park Reservoir.
All persons appointed must be residents within the District and experienced and knowledgeable about river conditions along the Taylor and Gunnison Rivers. Selected members shall be notified in writing of their appointment. If interested in serving, please send to the District a letter of interest including the reason for your interest. The Board will consider letters of support or nomination from other interested parties.
The deadline for submitting letters of interest is June 10, 2016. Please send letters of interest to: UGRWCD, 210 West Spencer Avenue, Suite B, Gunnison, CO 81230. Letters may also be emailed to: email@example.com. For questions, please call 641-6065.
