NM CAP Entity holds regular meeting, hears about ongoing work 050217, part 1

[Editor's Note: This four-hour meeting will be covered in multiple articles.]

By Mary Alice Murphy

The New Mexico Central Arizona Project Entity members and attendees addressed a long agenda and received a lot of information at the regular meeting held May 2, 2017 at the Grant County Administration Center.

In the absence of Chairwoman Darr Shannon, Vice Chairman Vance Lee, representing Hidalgo County, led the meeting.

As is customary, public input came first. Allyson Siwik, Gila Conservation Coalition executive director, spoke first. "The April meeting should be a wake-up call for you. You are still searching for a feasible project. You have 2 ½ years to get through the NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) process, along with the draft EIS (environmental impact statement), public input and the final EIS. We need a schedule. If you have crossed the line that makes it too late for a project, please do not fritter away the dollars when they could be best spent on local water projects."-- Continue reading
