Quarterly Pecos Canyon Collaboration (PCC) Meetings


The first PCC meeting was held at the UPWA office in February, 2010. The goals of these meetings are to remedy the lack of coordination among various agencies in the area and to establish a precedent of working together to maximize all efforts to improve conditions in the Pecos. Attendees include representatives from the NM Department of Game & Fish, NM DOT, NMENV Surface Water Quality Bureau, San Miguel County, Pecos National Historical Park, the Village of Pecos, Truchas Chapter of Trout Unlimited, political representatives, and general community members. Our next meeting will be in June, 2016
