Whether it’s for clean water from your kitchen tap, water for hay and livestock or flows to paddle and play on, we all rely on our rivers. Learn more about current conditions and issues in the Blue and Colorado river watersheds at the Summit State of the River. Please register to tune in for this virtual event.
Presentations will include forecasts of how much water will be in area rivers and reservoirs later this summer, how Summit County fits into forecasted shortages facing the larger Colorado River Basin, an update on Summit County reservoirs, transmountain diversions and information about how you can participate in Blue River planning efforts to assess and sustain this valuable resource and its associated ecosystem.
This event is co-sponsored by the Colorado River District, Community Agriculture Alliance, and Yampa White Green Basin Roundtable.
