Colorado Foundation for Water Education
Water Efficiency Tour June 11-12, 2015
No matter where you live, join the Colorado Foundation for Water Education to explore water efficiency along the Front Range, June 11-12.
This annual tour is the most unique professional development opportunity available in Colorado water. We will see, first-hand, the extent of water conservation and reuse along the Front Range and identify exemplary projects that other communities can use to cut their water use in the future. Gain an understanding of what's possible and what hurdles exist with water conservation--an understanding that's critical to the future and to Colorado's Water Plan.
Tour with a diverse group of expert speakers, legislators, decision makers, educators, water professionals and others to learn together, and visit exclusive sites to:
- Look behind the scenes at operations of a wholesale plant nursery
- See and learn about water treatment for reuse at various purification facilities
- Enjoy a dinner at the scenic Cherry Creek Marina with Ellen Hanak, Public Policy Institute of California and Taylor Hawes, The Nature Conservancy
- Visit the Fort St. Vrain generating station and hear perspectives from the energy industry
- Educators will have the opportunity to network, earn continuing education credit, and come away with new lesson plans and curriculum that explore water efficiency
Bike along the South Platte to discover how entities are reclaiming and protecting urban waterways and gain an understanding of the connection between water use, river health and development. View the itinerary here. Both tours follow the same itinerary, select the date that fits your schedule—space is extremely limited.
