It's always nice to learn more about water law. Unfortunately, it's such a complex topic and that creates a difficult task for the presenter. They did a good job, I learned a couple new things.

The Next Evolution of Public Hearings: Digital

5

Wow...just wow! I see us being able to hold digital hearings in a not to distance timeframe. One day we won't have the limitations that having to hold in-person hearings on a specific night imposes. This will lead to more public engagement, input and more volunteers who can populate our boards and commissions because they can "hear" the applications on their own time! I can't wait!
