Drop In: UPCOMING EVENTS
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.
