***Registration is Now Open for the 8th Annual Water 101 Seminar, September 22, 2014 (Telluride, CO)***
The 8th annual Water 101 Seminar will be held September 22, 2014 at the Telluride Town Council Chambers Rebekah Hall (113 East Columbia Avenue, Telluride, CO 81435). We are again fortunate to have Colorado Supreme Court Justice Gregory Hobbs as our keynote speaker. The Seminar qualifies for continuing education credits for lawyers and realtors.
We are trying to obtain input on whether or not there is support for a National Water Policy. Please provide comments and input, including why or why not. Thank you in advance for your time!
The freshwater team at National Geographic believes the principle of motivated individual action can help to restore the flow of the Colorado River. Together with the Bonneville Environment Foundation and Participant Media, National Geographic has created the “Change the Course” campaign.
The following provides legislative updates for the 2014 session. The Board of the Southwestern Water Conservation District provides this as a service to those interested in water related legislation. We hope that you find the updates beneficial.
Southwestern Water Conservation District
As an essential resource, water supports the open space provided by the state’s productive ranches and farms, brings us recreational activities such as boating and fishing, is the source of high quality drinking water for our growing towns and cities, and provides life to the beautiful environment that surrounds us.
Weather watchers are needed to help Colorado State monitor the ongoing drought and longer-term climate conditions. The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network, known as CoCoRaHS, is hoping to have at least one person per square mile recording observations along the Front Range, and as many as possible elsewhere in the state.
