Colorado Water Issues: What is happening to our water?
Shannon Ullman will be talking about all things related to water that concern Colorado residents on Tuesday, May 8 from 7:00 to 8:00pm at the Rifle Branch Library. Ullman will discuss everything from water conservation to the use of water for natural gas development. There are many issues facing us here on the Western Slope: 80% of Colorado's water is on the western slope, yet 80% of Colorado's population lives east of the Continential Divide. Colorado's water nourishes 19 states and Mexico. Many uses compete for a scarce and limited water supply. What does this mean for the future?
Ullman is a Project Engineer with Schmueser Gordon Meyer (SGM), which is a multidisciplinary civil engineering firm whose projects involve wastewater, drinking water, and natural water resources.
This event is part of the Colorado Water 2012 Project. Colorado’s most important water organizations initiated a statewide water awareness campaign called Colorado Water 2012 whose mission is to “engage Coloradans in a statewide celebration of water: past, present, and future.” The Rifle Branch Library will be hosting the Colorado Water 2012 Display from April 29th through May 12th.
