Why does Colorado Springs Utilities support Water Education Colorado?

Colorado Springs Utilities was a founding member of the board of Water Education Colorado and helped shape its mission and vision, and helped hire the first Executive Director for the newly formed organization in 2002.  Water Education Colorado is important to the State of Colorado as they help educate citizens and legislators about the issues and complexities of water by creating communication programs and tools.

Why is water resources education important?

Water is a limited resource and Coloradans need to understand its complexities in order to value it. We must also ensure that future generations have the knowledge to make sound decisions and balance the needs of agriculture, environment, and responsible growth.  There will also be increasing demands in the future to fund aging infrastructure, incentives for new efficiency technologies, and the need to build new water systems.

What does Colorado Springs Utilities do?

Colorado Springs Utilities is a four service, water, wastewater, electricity and natural gas provider for the greater Colorado Springs area.
