#SnowTodayFlowTomorrow — #snowpack on Colorado’s #WestSlope provides essential water supplies for agriculture, recreation, municipal, environmental and industrial uses. At the Colorado River District, we’re working to preserve and protect YOUR #WaterResources for all water users in the district, present and future.
On September 24th of 1937, the Colorado River District’s board of directors sat down for their first official meeting in Glenwood Springs. 82 years later today, we’re still working for the people of western Colorado to keep #WestSlope water on the Western Slope! #ColoradoRiver #cowater #westslopebestslope #yourrivers #yourwater
Please join us for the Colorado River District’s 16th Annual Water Seminar in Grand Junction on September 18th. Registration link in Bio “Uncertainty: You can count on it -- Feast or famine on the Colorado River” is the theme of this year’s affordable, one-day program on important western water challenges. As the theme suggests, the historic dry snow year of 2018 was reversed by the abundant snowpack of 2019 and this year’s unusually late and prolonged runoff. But 2019 was only the fifth above-average year since the turn of the century. As such, we are reminded that one good water year does not a drought break, and that long-term pressures on the Colorado River persist.
The Colorado River District team cleaned up some serious trash as part of the @glenwoodspringscolorado 2019 #RiverFest !! Glad to see so many organizations and businesses dedicating their time and service to cleaning up their hometown river! #talkingtrash #westslopebestslope @visitglenwood @glenwoodspringspi @sgm_engineering
#MorningCommute w/ Colorado River District General Manager, Andy Mueller: “2019 has been a great water year for Western Colorado, and we should be happy ... But we’re not out of the woods yet. It would take ten consecutive years exactly like this one to restore storage levels at Lake Powell.” . . . #ColoradoRiver #CoWater #hydrology #WestSlope
