The White River Public Input Report summarizes information regarding local citizens' thoughts on developing a White River water management plan. This information was gathered through individual interviews, focus groups, public input sessions, and comments via website. Please revisit this page frequently for updates.
A subcommittee of the PAC listed above is in the process of refining the information from the White River Public Input Report and developing a preliminary scope of work (SOW). The PAC will then review and edit the SOW before it is vetted by the public again. Once the public has reviewed and provided input, the PAC will finally submit it to the White River and Douglas Creek Conservation District Boards. At that time the Districts will take appropriate action based on the PAC's recommendations.
