Healthy Rivers, Healthy Economies: Why Rivers Matter for Colorado Communities

We invite you to join us for the second webinar in our series about the importance of Colorado’s Water Plan. In this webinar we will learn about a new study commissioned by Business for Water Stewardship (BWS) that looks at the full economic impact of the state’s rivers. In 2011 BWS commissioned a similar study which showed that $9 billion is generated every year from people recreating on or near Colorado’s rivers. This new data is expected to be higher with an even greater economic impact.
