Water Regulators Seek New Approaches To Drought

DENVER (AP) — Water regulators are asking farmers, ranchers and other water users to share their ideas for dealing with the current drought.

The Colorado Water Conservation Board is holding a conference Wednesday in Denver to share new approaches to drought preparedness.

They also want information on what drought may look like under future climate change conditions.

Nearly all of Colorado has been declared a crop disaster area, and the entire state has been in either a severe, extreme or exceptional drought this summer.
