FOLBR Special Event: Water 101

On February 26, FOLBR held ..."Colorado Water 101"... As an introductory water education event to local and state water information. Convened at The PAD in Silverthorne, the event covered water development history, water rights basics, water administration, and duties and responsibilities of water commissioners.

Speakers included: Patty Rettig, Head Archivist, Water Resources Archives, CSU Morgan Library; Caleb Foy, Assistant Division Engineer, CDWR Water Division 5; Troy Wineland, CDWR Water Commissioner, Water District 36; Scott Hummer, former Water Commissioner and FOLBR Board Member. Their information focused on both the Blue River and the Colorado River.

The audience of about 50 people had mixed interests, as evidenced through their questions during the presentations. Participants left the event with an improved understanding of Colorado's most precious natural resource, our water.
