The United States Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission (USIBWC) announces the appointment of new board members to the Colorado River Citizens Forum (CRCF). The first public meeting with the new board is scheduled for March 5, 4:00-6:00 p.m. MST at Yuma County Development Services, Aldrich Hall, 2351 West 26th Street in Yuma, Arizona.
USIBWC Yuma Area Operations Manager Anna Morales will serve as the agency representative on the board.
"This board brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in water issues from a variety of viewpoints. I look forward to their support as we address the region's boundary and water issues," said Commissioner Drusina.
The USIBWC established the CRCF in 2003 to facilitate the exchange of information between the USIBWC and members of the public about Commission activities in Yuma County, Arizona and Imperial County, California. The CRCF is intended to bring together community members, enabling the early and continued two-way flow of information, concerns, values, and needs between the USIBWC and the general public, environmentalists, government agencies, irrigation districts, municipalities, and other interested parties.
Commissioner Drusina will attend the March 5 meeting to welcome the new board. In other business, USIBWC Secretary Sally Spener will give an overview of Commission history, mission, and projects while USIBWC Area Operations Manager Anna Morales will present information about the Commission's activities in Yuma and Imperial Counties. The Commission is responsible for applying the boundary and water treaties between the United States and Mexico. To carry out its responsibilities, the Commission has various projects along the U.S.-Mexico border including international storage dams and diversion dams, wastewater treatment plants, flood control levees, and boundary demarcation monuments.
