Water Workshop to tackle ‘New Normal’ in the West

The Gunnison River, seen here just below the Lake City Bridge west of Gunnison, and the entire West are feeling the effects of a long-term drought. The 38th annual Western Water Workshop set for July 17-19 at Western State Colorado University will explore what it means to have a “new normal.”

In these years of drought, you can never get too much information about water, and the opportunities to learn more are abundant.

The 38th annual Colorado Water Workshop, July 17-19 at Western State Colorado University, offers insights on a variety of topics, from the political (basin-wide planning policies) to the environmental (riparian values and instream flows) and everything between.

Even the workshop’s title, “Planning for the New Normal,” sets a high bar for participants and presenters.

Cost of the workshop ($295) includes meals, networking and valuable insights into how Colorado water is managed.

Also, the Colorado Legislature’s Water Resources Review Committee will convene during the workshop, giving participants the rare opportunity to see water law and sausage being made simultaneously.


WHAT: “Planning for the New Normal,” the 38th annual Colorado Water Workshop, plus evening socials and daytime tours.

WHERE: Western State Colorado University, Gunnison.

WHEN: July 17-19.
