The Task 4 Process in TH-5:
Meeting Notes - Initial Meeting (November 10, 2008
Meeting Notes - Meeting 2 (February 2, 2009)
TH-5 formed a working committee to consider future management options following their February 2, 2009 meeting, but this group has yet to contact the GMD about any further activity. They also requested to be included in the 2010 AWEP proposal to NRCS - to be eligible for an NRCS payment for converting irrigated acres to dry land production. This was accomplished. No further activity has been requested by this HPA.
