Thank you to all who were able to attend the community meeting on Sunday, August 14 regarding the flooding our community has experienced this summer. We hope to be announcing upcoming, related gatherings in the near future. Below is some information that I hope is helpful - written notes are also available at the library. Please know that we will add to this list as more resources are discovered. If you learn of something that might be helpful to private homeowners, acequias, or for community members wishing to learn more about our watershed we encourage you to get in touch with us at the library so that we can share it with everyone.
