I’m heading to Las Vegas for the Colorado River Water Users Association Annual Conference. Posting here may be intermittent.
You can follow along with the hash tag #CRWUA2018 or follow @CRWUAwater.
I love this conference. The networking opportunities blow me away. I’ll be up front in the sessions live-tweeting the goings on. Stop by and introduce yourself.

Lower Green River Lake
Looking upriver at the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers in late September, one of the driest years on record for the Colorado River system. Water managers in both the upper and lower basins are working to get more water to this point in order to bolster the low level of Lake Powell, which is not far downstream.
