“Keeping Water Flowing For Generations to Come”

Wednesday, March 22
Lory Student Center Theater, Fort Collins
5:30 PM Reception
6:15 PM Presentation

While water is a global issue it is also a local issue. This presentation will cover water issues from a global perspective and how they link to local issues in Colorado and similarly to other countries around the world. We’ll focus in on how the developing world is building water infrastructure and institutions differently to care for their water resources for generations to come. Important lessons learned from the US over the past 150 years are being leveraged in other countries to develop their water resources using more innovative and sustainable practices than traditionally implemented.
