Some question whether Mayor Jackie Biskupki has a vision for Salt Lake City 5.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski in her first budget address Tuesday night used the word “infrastructure” eight times. She talked about the city’s debt service and sidewalk rehabilitation, about storm drains and pavement overlays and parking, about roads and traffic light timing calibration.

Chairman of Colorado&#39;s inter-basin water committee booked to speak in Steamboat April 25 22.4.2016 Steamboat Pilot
When Gov. John Hickenlooper’s chief water advisor, John Stulp, comes to Northwest Colorado on April 25, he’ll be treated to a grand tour of the combined Yampa and White river basins at the cusp of spring runoff.

Yampa River flows unusually high for mid April 15.4.2016 Steamboat Pilot
The Yampa River was flowing at more than three times the median volume for April 14 Thursday, but a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Grand Junction confirmed the rushing river was rising due to rapid, low-level snowmelt, and the peak of spring runoff is likely still well in the future. The Yampa was flowing at 1,650 cubic feet per second at mid-afternoon Thursday after dropping from its daily peak of 1,790 cfs, recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey just after midnight. Those flows compare to the median flow for April 14 of 470 cfs. “About a week ago, the Yampa began to show a general trend upward with daily swings,” NWS forecaster Dennis Phillips said. “There was a surge with temperatures getting so warm we saw water run off throughout the night. Low elevation runoff could crest soon.” With the same thought in mind, the city of Steamboat Springs advised residents living near the smaller creeks that feed the Yampa within the city limits to pay close attention. “While peak flows can ...
