Water seminars held at CMU
Water seminars will be held over the next three weeks at CMU
The drought is still an issue on the Western Slope and the topic of water is as critical as ever. An annual event is hoping to educate people about water management in our region.
Water is a precious resource especially in the western United States and a seminar being held at CMU will help explain some of the methods used in managing our water.
The seminar continues each of the next three Mondays. Topics covered during the three hour sessions will include the history and culture of water in our region. Speakers will include attorneys, wildlife experts, and even a Colorado Supreme Court justice.
Organizers say they welcome anyone to attend and hope to educate as many people as possible.
“The more informed we all are about how water management already works and what the current challenges are, the more likely we are to come together to find solutions that are beneficial to a broad range of folks” said Hannah Holm, Coordinator for the Water Center at CMU.
Despite the snow of the last few weeks in the mountains, we've got a long way to go and the long-term outlook calls for drier than average conditions to continue.
These seminars are being held at the CMU Ballroom and there is a fee for the event. If you'd like more information, click here.
