I would like to invite you to a community meeting to hear from an expert water attorney, Mr. Hank Worley, who has been involved with water issues in the Black Forest as well as the surrounding area for many years. I believe this meeting will be very informative and worthwhile.
The meeting is sponsored by the Black Forest Water and Wells Committee and will be held on Monday, September 30th at 7 p.m. at the Black Forest Community Club just north of the intersection of Shoup Road and Black Forest Road.
Mr. Worley will be presenting information on Colorado water law, Denver Basin water law, the Denver Basin aquifers themselves, water rights and other issues. He will have a question and answer session as well.
I hope you can attend.
