Over 175 attendees, 25 speakers, and 30 sponsors and exhibitors came together at the 29th annual conference at Embassy Suites in Loveland, Colorado this week.

We heard from two expert keynote speakers, Patty Limerick and Luke Runyon, and dove into topics from Women in Water to an Update on the 2013 Flood Recovery over the two day conference.

Eric Wilkinson, who recently retired from a 30-year career with Northern Water, was honored with the 2018 Friend of the South Platte Award. Thank you for all of your work in the South Platte Basin, Eric!
