Local Water Resources: What it means for you & your family
The agricultural valley we live in is known as the Middle Colorado River Watershed. There are many issues facing the health and conservation of the water resources in our watershed. Hydrologist Jeff Crane will speak on these issues, which include agriculture, gas development, source water protection, invasive species and water quantity. Crane will discuss the work performed by local watershed groups throughout Colorado. Join us at the Rifle Branch Library onTuesday, May 1 at 7:00pm to learn more about issues facing local water resources and what we can do to help!
Jeff Crane, Executive Director of the Colorado Watershed Assembly, is a hydrologist specializing in stream restoration, irrigation diversion and habitat enhancement projects with a major emphasis in water resource engineering and hydrology.
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.
