Colorado River Water Availability Study
The seven states sharing the Colorado River and the US Bureau of Reclamation recently completed a multi-year study identifying overuse of the river's resources. But this study is not destined for the shelf; work is underway in four major value areas on better planning and managing of the Colorado River and the demands on it. Chris Treese, External Affairs Manager for the Colorado River District, will talk about the findings of this important study and where we go from here.
Overview of Weather Modification Programs in Colorado
Maria Pastore, Hydrologist at Grand River Consulting and Consultant to the Front Range Water Council will provide an overview of the weather modification (cloud-seeding) programs in Colorado, with specific focus on the Central Colorado Mountains River Basin weather modification program. Cloud-seeding programs have been in existence in Colorado for over 40 years, and are supported with permits and funds from the Colorado Water Conservation Board and Lower Basin States to help with growth and development of these programs. Grand River administers the Central Colorado program on behalf of several East Slope, West Slope and Ski Area program participants. Maria will share how local support of these programs is valuable to Colorado’s involvement with solutions to basin-wide water supply shortages, come learn more!
