Our Utilities Board is providing a strategic vision as we continue to prepare for the many changes ahead in the utilities industry and our community. Its focus on maintaining competitive rates, while also providing safe and reliable services, illustrates the critical balance required to responsibly and proactively shape the future.The way our water resources team works to ensure water is efficiently managed and readily available is a great example of this. We oversee a complex water system made up of 25 reservoirs and dams and more than 2,000 miles of pipes.The entire system stretches over more than nine counties and includes water rights in three river basins. It involves coordination with local, state and federal agencies, compliance with multiple decrees, regional agreements and contracts. One great example of our collaboration includes managing flows in the Upper Arkansas River for multiple stakeholders. We work with recreational and environmental interests to manage our operations per state guidelines. This includes not exchanging water when the Bureau of Reclamation is releasing flow in support of maintaining a minimum flow for rafting.By actively participating on water boards, advisory committees, and Basin Roundtables across the state, we are able to work collaboratively with diverse groups of stakeholders to proactively manage our water resources. This allows Utilities to efficiently manage to provide the most value for our customers and the region.
