***************************

Thanks to Melissa, Journey Santa Fe’s ace organizer, and to everyone who listened so attentively to my talk on the Rio Grande at Collected Works on Sunday.  Remember how I talked about New Mexico’s lack of a policy focused on the overall health of our rivers and how our existing policies to divide the waters actually permit the diversion of a river’s entire flow?
After 20 years of promoting greater public attention to the fate of rivers, Rio Grande Restoration has concluded to initiate a project to show state policy-makers, agency administrators and managers how river flow can be protected, and a more natural hydrograph established, with virtually no harm to more traditional, consumptive users, like irrigators and thirsty cities.  Gratifyingly, the Bureau of Reclamation, Army Corps of Engineers, BLM and the NM Interstate Stream Commission have joined us as partners.
I wanted to share a little bit of information on that project with you.  So, our brand-new interpretive booklet is attached.  With your permission, I’ll keep you informed (via quarterly e-newsletters and advisories) as our stream flow restoration initiatives progress. (You should notify me by return e-mail, if you ever want to opt out of receiving such “river-oriented junk mail”.)
Happy reading and many thanks for your kind concern about a sustainable water future for nature and people.
