Water Woes In Western Colorado

Local News

Recreation, our food, and even brushing our teeth, low water levels in western Colorado threatens them all.

Since there is no substitute for water, many gathered at the Two Rivers Convention Center to discuss current conditions of the river, and plans by western states on what to do to protect our water supplies.

The Colorado River District held their 2018 Water Seminar focused on the Colorado River. 

They discussed handling the growing demand for water, how other states like Utah use the river, plans to combat drought, and climate change conditions.

The seminar went over several studies including one that looked at how Lake Powell could be drained if the current drought continues and how that would impact Colorado.
