Join us in Grand Junction for our 16th Annual Colorado River Water Seminar — Registration is now open — LINK IN BIO!! . . Hear from national experts about current conditions, trends and future challenges associated with the “hardest working river in North America” – the Colorado River.“ . . Uncertainty: You can count on it — Feast or famine on the Colorado River” is the theme of this year’s affordable, one-day briefing on important Colorado River challenges. As the theme suggests, the historical poor snow year of 2018 was completely reversed by the healthy snowpack of 2019 and the unusual runoff, which continues to be strong. . . . But 2019 was only the fifth above-average year in the last 19 water years, and will not reduce long-term pressures on the Colorado River system. This year’s seminar will explore Drought Contingency Plans in the Colorado River basin intended to address uncertain hydrology, warming temperatures and low reservoir levels at Lakes Powell and Mead. . . The cost to attend is $35 in advance and $45 at the door; the cost includes lunch. #westslopebestslope #coloradoriver #grandjunction @gjdailysentinel @downtowngj @gjfreepress @junctionevents @grandjunction
