Garco Makes Changes to County COVID-19 Restrictions

17 hours ago

On Monday, April 19, following the discontinuation of the state Public Health Department’s Coronavirus dial, Garfield County Commissioners weighed in on how the county will approach COVID-19 restrictions.

The Colorado River’s biggest reservoirs are likely to drop to historically low levels later this year, prompting mandatory conservation by some of the river’s heaviest users.

The latest Bureau of Reclamation reservoir projections, which take into account river flows in a given year, show a likelihood that Lake Mead on the Arizona-Nevada stateline will dip below the critical threshold of 1,075 feet in elevation in May and remain below that level for the foreseeable future.

Colorado Broadcasters Association awarded this story a Certificate of Merit for Best Public Affairs Program in KDNK's statewide market in 2020. Listen again: John Goodwin is a career peace officer and retired professor of Criminal Justice at Colorado Mountain College.
