COLORADO, Morgan CD – Competition for the limited water resources used to be a primary, if not the primary, issue for agriculture in northeastern Colorado.

While quantity is still a major issue, water quality is increasingly important, particularly with deterioration of that quality. That was apparent at an annual locally led meeting hosted Wednesday in Brush by the Morgan Conservation District.

“The water quality is the biggest concern,” District Board Member Larry Hoozee said.

COLORADO, Longmont CD, Boulder Valley CD – For 15 years, Nancy McIntyre led the Longmont and Boulder Valley conservation districts, agencies with historic roots that receive little public attention despite their important mission of protecting soil health across hundreds of square miles in Boulder, Larimer and Weld counties.

She retired from the executive director job almost two years ago, but after each of the district’s two succeeding leaders stepping down soon after assuming the roles, McIntyre agreed to return to the conservation districts in an interim executive director position in which she remains today.

Despite being around for more than 70 years, the districts are not well-known to those outside agricultural communities, but are vital organizations that help carry on the productive heritage of local lands and continue to look for ways to help farmers.
