The Basin Roundtables are publicly open meetings that encourage the discussion and resolution of water related issues in the basin area. The roundtable meetings have the focussed goal of producing a water needs assessment, which is comprised of four components: consumptive water need, non-consumptive water need, available water supplies, and proposed projects/processes to help achieve water needs. Those represented at the meetings come from all areas of the water industry, including ditch companies and water shareholders.
