Rio Grande Water Conservation District http://kvnf.org en Connecting the Drops: Water Shortages in the San Luis Valley http://kvnf.org/post/connecting-drops-water-shortages-san-luis-valley <p>In early July, Colorado designated 14 counties "primary natural disaster areas" due to agricultural losses caused by the recent and ongoing drought. &nbsp;Several of those counties are in the San Luis Valley in south central Colorado. &nbsp;Farmers there are now eligible for low interest emergency loans, but as KGNU’s Maeve Conran reports, that may not be enough for this agricultural hub, which is facing a long term water crisis that could permanently affect the entire valley. &nbsp;</p> Fri, 26 Jul 2013 17:40:36 +0000 Connecting the Drops 13661 at http://kvnf.org Connecting the Drops: Water Shortages in the San Luis Valley
