Denver fest aims to involve public in water issues

DENVER — Water organizations are planning a free festival in Denver to raise awareness about what it takes to get clean water to people worldwide.

The Denver-based nonprofit group Water For People is presenting the Festival for Water at Civic Center Park on June 9 in collaboration with sponsors, partners and the American Water Works Association.

Aaron Carlson of Water For People says the festival is a fundraiser and awareness builder. It will feature bands including The Motet, plus food trucks. Carlson says the idea is to get the public more involved in water issues and not just draw engineers, water providers and others who will be attending the association’s conference.

Colorado is stuck in a two-year drought, despite spring rain and snow storms.
