Water Demands: A Creative Water Panel
There’s no easy answer to water concerns in the west. The conversation is rife with binaries like rural and urban, East Slope and West Slope, upper basin and lower basin. This way of handling the conversation leads to a conflict mentality that reinforces the dogma of one side vs. the other. How do we get to a new conversation? Well, we invite some of the biggest players in Colorado Water to role play as one another. We’re excited to announce a new kind of water conversation at this year’s Western Colorado Food and Farm Forum. Speakers will include Andy Mueller (CO River District), Brad Wind (Northern Water), Becky Mitchell(CWCB) , Alex Davis (Aurora Water), Paul Bruchez (Rancher), and Sean Cronin (St. Vrain and Left Hand Water Conservancy District).
* We will adhere to all necessary COVID restrictions as informed by Montrose County Public Health
