The Middle Colorado River Watershed Partnership (MCRWP) will host a seminar on the Colorado River titled “The Colorado River: People, Policies, and Plumbing” on Friday, Jan. 14, at 8:30 a.m., at the Garfield County School District Re-2 administration building, 839 Whiteriver Ave. in Rifle…

Eric Kuhn, general manger of the Colorado River Water Conservation District, will discuss how the Colorado River is managed, what water goes where (and why), and the major issues facing the long-term viability of the river and its resources…

Friday’s seminar is the most recent in a series that the watershed partnership is hosting. Upcoming seminars will cover trends in regional water management, municipal water systems, agricultural water issues, and connections between water, growth and development. Local educator Mike Wilde, who also sits on the MCRWP steering committee, said education is a “top priority” for the Middle Colorado River Partnership. “Understanding our local rivers and watersheds, as well as the larger Colorado River system, is critical to a collaborative approach to watershed management and stewardship,” added Wilde.
