Colorado River District discusses water challenges

Colorado River District

The Colorado River District holds an event in Carbondale Thursday to unite scientists and stakeholders in discussing pressing issues facing local water users.


Drought, climate change and low snowpack top the list of challenges that will be delved into at the State of the Rivers event Thursday night.

The annual gathering brings together farmers, scientists and water managers, as well as others.  

Zane Kessler from the Colorado River District says everyone should be interested.

“We’re all water users. Whether you brush your teeth in the morning or whether you’re irrigating your hayfield. Water is the tie that binds us all together on the Western Slope.”

The State of the Rivers takes place at the Third Street Center Thursday in Carbondale. A reception at 5:15 is followed by talks starting at six.
