2005 AWRA Annual Symposium April 15, Golden

The American Water Resources Association (Colorado Section) is pleased to announce its annual symposium April 15, 2005. Co-sponsored by the Colorado Foundation for Water Education, the symposium will focus on results from the recent state-led Statewide Water Supply Initiative (SWSI) and what these results mean for the future sustainability of Colorado's water supply.

Finalized in December 2004, the SWSI study predicted that communities around Colorado will fall an average 20 percent short of meeting estimated 2030 water demands.

Invited speakers and panelists will discuss innovative solutions to address predicted shortfalls, legal barriers to creative solutions, what the future holds for Colorado water users and water providers, unsustainable use of Denver Basin ground water, and other related topics. Keynote speakers will include former Governor Dick Lamm and Colorado Supreme Court Justice Gregory Hobbs.

The symposium will run from 8:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at the Mt. Vernon Country Club in Golden, CO. A reception will follow.

To register, go to the AWRA Web site at http://awra.org/state/colorado/ or call (303) 806-8952. The early registration deadline is April 6, 2005. CFWE members receive a $15 registration discount. With additional questions, contact the Foundation at (303) 377-4433.
