Central AZ Project Candidate Forum (Sustainable Tucson September General Meeting)

posted Sunday, August 31, 2008        

Location: Northwest Community Center 2160 N 6th Ave

For our next general meeting on September 9th, Sustainable Tucson will be hosting presentations by the candidates running for Central Arizona Project Board (officially, the Central Arizona Water Conservation District Board of Directors).
The CAP Board positions greatly affect our state – especially at this moment of diminishing water supplies, climate change, and shifts in the pricing and supply of energy. CAP moreover has stated that it is looking to change it’s role from managing the Colorado River, to also helping acquire new water supplies. It is important that the public be aware of the positions CAP Board candidates hold, and of this new role CAP is defining for itself.
The event will take place from 6-8 pm at the Northwest Community Center; located at 2160 N. 6th Ave. Light refreshments will be served.

Below are links to both the CAP site, and to a recent article about CAP’s new role in the latest Water Resources Research Center bulletin (see the guest view). Please join us for this important evening, and come prepared with questions.
