Idaho Water Resource Board extends public comment on criteria for evaluating water projects
The Idaho Department of Water Resource’s Finance Board voted Thursday to extend the public comment period for feedback on the criteria that will be used to evaluate water projects for a project priority list.
The board’s vote extends the public comment period an additional 30 days, through Oct. 11, according to a press release issued by the Idaho Department of Water Resources.
The evaluation criteria are available on the Idaho Department of Water Resources website, starting on the third page of materials from Thursday’s meeting. Idahoans can also view the board’s Regional Water Sustainability Project list online.
Public comments can be submitted via email to board staff member Neeley Miller at Neeley.Miller@idwr.idaho.gov.
Idaho Department of Water Resources officials said projects that qualify for the priority list creates recognition that the project has the potential to achieve water sustainability, although qualifying for the priority list itself does not represent a specific funding commitment.
