Drought conditions and water supply info on KZYR

EAGLE COUNTY – Drought conditions and water supply are discussion topics for today’s “Community Focus” show on local radio station KZYR, 97.7 FM the Zephyr.

Eagle River Water and Sanitation District General Manager Linn Brooks and board Chairman Rick Sackbauer will join Community Focus host Rohn Robbins to discuss current drought conditions and what our community can do to mitigate local impacts.

The hour-long talk program airs at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays.

Brooks and Sackbauer will discuss potential drought impacts, how the public water system has prepared for drought conditions, collaborative efforts to mitigate impacts and actions community members can take.

The district’s water use priorities are public health and safety (normal indoor water use and maintaining storage for fire protection); local economic benefits associated with streamflows, recreation, and tourism; and long-term system reliability.
