The project occupies lands of the Eldorado National Forest.
The EID, several state and federal agencies, and several non-governmental agencies have asked the Commission for time to work collaboratively with a facilitator to resolve certain issues relevant to this proceeding. These meetings are a part of that collaborative process. On Monday, May 13, 2002, there will be a Plenary Meeting, and meetings of Recreation and Terrestrial Workgroups. On Tuesday, May 14, the Aquatics-Hydrology Workgroup will meet. The workgroup meetings will focus on further defining interests and the development of management objectives.
