Arroyo Colorado

November 2, 2006

Dear Arroyo Partners,

I hope you have been able to take a look at "A Watershed Protection Plan for the Arroyo Colorado, Phase I." Again, this is a draft and it is available for download off our website www.arroyocolorado.org. A link is provided on the right side of the homepage highlighted by "New:" in red. The new deadline for comment is next Friday, November 10, 2006. I had hoped to give an additional week for review and comment on this document, however we are pressed to get it finalized and printed by the end of this year so that we can get on with the real business plan implementation. If you wish to comment on this document please do so ASAP. Send any comments and/or edits to lauradlg@tamu.edu, and please copy jbenavides@utb.edu with ARROYO PLAN COMMENTS in the subject line. Again, this plan is recognized as a dynamic document that can and will be revised as we work to implement the strategies outlined. What is important about this plan is that it charts our course and identifies our priorities for seeking grants to fund projects that will not only improve the water quality, but foster economic prosperity and quality of life for us and our children.

In summary, the measures contained in the plan include:

Thank you for being a part of all this planning process!

Enjoy the coolness,

Laura
