Water in the West: Fact or Fiction
Tuesday, November 17th, 2015; 5:30‐7:30pm
Grand Hyatt Denver, Mt. Sopris Room
As part of AWRA’s 50th Annual Conference, being held in Denver for the first time in over 20 years, AWRA Colorado, the Colorado Foundation for Water Education, and POND are co‐sponsoring a special evening event. The evening borrows from the POND recipe and will prove to be a fun and interactive networking event! The event is open to everyone including local water professionals and all conference attendees. Please join us to learn more about water across the country in a fun and interactive environment, to meet new colleagues interested in all facets of water, and to network with conference attendees and others throughout the water community.
Brad Udall, Senior Water and Climate Research Scientist and Scholar at Colorado State University, will be begin the evening regaling us with the story of The Colorado River’s Structural Deficit: How and Why we Created the Monster that threatens to drain Lake Mead. Brad’s family has been intricately tied to the history of water in the West and his telling of this history is very entertaining and informative. Brad’s talk will be followed by an engaging team trivia game regarding water facts from around the country highlighting regional similarities and differences.
The cost is $25.00 and hors d’oeuvres will be provided and there will be a cash bar. This event is not included in conference registration fees. To register for the Tuesday evening event, on the registration page put your name, “Tuesday Event” in the member number box, and input the number of attendees for the Tuesday event. http://www.awra.org/cgi‐bin/sc_2015_annual_conference.cgi
