Lost Dog Found – Banjo

Latest update from Donna Brooks, re: Banjo…

“Just wanted to thank all of you who run the Poudre that kept a watch out for our lost dog Banjo. She was found on Friday 7/24 in Estes Park and had traveled about 80 miles across the forest to get there. Many of you helped in the search, helped with transportation, and also helped by keeping in touch with us with your sightings of her. Just wanted you to know how much we appreciate all of you who spend your time on the river. You were instrumental in helping us keep tabs on Banjo and also in helping her find her way home. A big thanks to all of you who were involved in the efforts to get her out of the canyon.”

Boaters- Front Range Communities are trying to steal our water and forever change the Poudre. Have your voice heard. We were at the “hearing” last night, and there’s another public hearing tonight in Greeley. Do NOT be Complacent. These front range communities are hungry- and hungry for our Riv… all in the name of Ag. Save Ag water to build more homes on Ag land… what a farce! Make your opinion count! Make your voice heard! Written comments are taken until Sept 3 if you can’t make it to the hearing tonight (and if you weren’t among the “randomly” selected people to speak last night).

Lost Dog – Banjo

From Donna Brooks:

Our Siberian Husky/Shepherd Mix fell into the Poudre River a few weeks ago. She has been seen across from the Mishawaka on the opposite side of the road, and most recently by Stove Prairie close to mile post 105 & 106 Thursday July 9th. She has a pink collar with a pink ID tag with her name and our number. She is also wearing a blue harness. Her name is Banjo, but we call her Jo-Jo. You will see her on the wrong side of the river and she is unable to get across or go to people for help. She has traveled far and is probably scared and looking for a way home. She is 9 months old, has tri color fur (cream with black tips and some peach), and she also has a black tipped tail. If you see her please call 970-493-1093(home). You can leave a message if no one answers, or call 801-633-7836 (cell), this also has voice messaging. If she is spotted please call as soon as you are able. Search and Rescue will get her out as long as they can see where she is. Thank you so much for watching out for her. We are anxious to get her back home.

STP Community Meeting July 14

Hi,

The NISP train is steamrolling forward toward a huge new Poudre River diversion project with the recent release of the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS). Time to submit SDEIS comments is very short. Could you please post that Save The Poudre is hosting a community meeting next Tuesday, July 14, 5:30-7:30 pm, at Avogadro’s Number to get the facts out and rally opposition to this huge, misguided project.

Here’s the link: http://savethepoudre.org/events-calendar.html

The proposed project would not affect boating flows in the canyon (thank goodness!) but will have big negative effects downstream, including on the # of boatable days and flows at the future Fort Collins whitewater park.

I can send the poster for the meeting as a JPG or PDF if you could post it on the Rock Report page.

Thanks!
Doug

Crazy, on my morning run I witnessed a rise in the Riv from a 3.75 when running down past the Rock, to 3.8 when running back home, and then on way to work stopped to check and it was 3.9. In the course of 1 hour it came up that much.

A 24˚ drop in air temp and deluge of rain in the course of a couple hours can make for a cold day.

Message From Emergency Services:

Emergency Response resources are aware of the car in the river just west of mm 115 (this would be between BTO and the low head dam, the Monroe Tunnel). So please do not call 911. Emergency resources hope to remove the vehicle next week or when conditions are appropriate.

Thank you and Boat Safe!
