Health of river will be reported

Daily Staff Report

AVON ” A report on the health of the Eagle River and the surrounding valley will be given at the upcoming Waterwise Wednesday session.

Colorado State University was asked to prioritize the problems facing the river and the valley. The report analyzed how much water is in the river, what is flowing into the water from sewage plants, road sand that oozes into creeks from I-70 and the old mine south of Minturn, among other topics.

The report, commissioned by the Avon-based Eagle River Watershed Council, also identified stretches of river that can most effectively be cleaned up.

When: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday

Where: Avon Library
