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 KVNF Local Newscast: Monday, July 22, 2013 http://kvnf.org/post/kvnf-local-newscast-monday-july-22-2013 <p><strong>Headlines:</strong></p><ul><li>Climber Found Dead at Capitol Peak</li><li>Mountain Village May Soon Require Recycling at Construction Sites</li><li>Colorado State Troopers Begin Special Training This Week</li><li>Colorado Lottery Criticized for Awarding Contract to Overseas Company</li><li>Former Ouray Mayor Pam Larsen to Fill City Councilor Vacancy</li><li>Colorado’s Drought Fueling More Water Disputes Mon, 22 Jul 2013 14:35:25 +0000 Brian Cambria 13444 at http://kvnf.org
