Colorado Water Congress
all me a water nerd, but I love going to the Colorado Water Congress annual convention every year. But it can be exhausting. Three days of networking and catching up with professional colleagues (and friends) can wear a girl down, but it’s totally worth it. The convention is devoted to education and conversation on all things water.

Join the Colorado Water Congress for their Summer Conference, August 19-21 at the Vail Cascade Resort.
In January 2015 the Colorado Water Congress (CWC) awarded Bill Trampe, a life-long Gunnison Rancher and Colorado water advocate, the 2015 Wayne N. Aspinall “Water Leader of the Year” Award. The Aspinall Award is given annually in recognition of a career of service and contribution to Colorado’s water community. It is awarded to a person who has dedicated a significant part of his or her career to the advancement of the state and its programs to protect, develop, and preserve the state’s water resources. Trampe was selected for the award by the previous Aspinall Award winners and CWC officers. CWC Board President, John McClow, said: “Bill Trampe’s leadership and original thinking in water and agriculture have had a tremendous positive impact in our community and the entire state. His modesty, wisdom and tireless commitment to achieving the best result, even when there is strong resistance, inspires everyone who has the opportunity to work with him.”
The game plan is in place. The team has been conditioned. It’s been a rough season. The quarterback got beat up a little bit, but seems to be on a winning streak. OK, it’s not football. But that is one way to get a first down as the state marches down the field to score with the Colorado Water Plan.
That two-word description is one way to boil down the Colorado Water Plan, all 2,000 pages and 15,000 comments on it, the Colorado Water Congress learned Thursday. “We have to be smarter. We’re not going to have enough to do everything we want,” Gov.
January 23, 2015--A conversation with Jim Lochhead and Eric Kuhn on water supply, transbasin diversions, conservation and more (CFWE)
Transbasin diversions have had a long, changing and important history redistributing water across Colorado. In partnership, the Colorado Water Congress and Colorado Foundation for Water Education coordinated a series of webinars looking at these projects and exploring questions that are arising in the drafting of Colorado’s Water Plan.
Although the bill doesn’t actually mandate anything, Republicans on a Senate committee Wednesday voted against it, in part, because they feared it might.
