Denver: @COWaterCongress Day 3 #cwcac2017

Construction cranes fill the Denver skyline, a sign of the city's growing population.

Today’s events feature US Sen. Cory Gardner and former Gov. Dick Lamm. My favorite part of the day will be the Aspinall Award luncheon.

Yesterday’s highlights included a review of historical droughts and floods from Nolan Doesken, State Climatologist. He showed peak flows on streams around the state with high flows plotted as dates on the graphic — very cool.

Brad Udall used part of his time to review extreme weather events in the context of climate change, including the unprecedented reduction in sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic this year.
