SWCD: the Weight of Water on Public Lands, with Laura Spann

Your Water Colorado Blog

Interview with a WEco Board Member
By Cody Williams

We spoke with Laura Spann, program coordinator for the Southwestern Water Conservation District (SWCD), which was created by the Colorado General Assembly to protect, conserve, use, and develop the water resources in the southwestern corner of the state. Laura oversees the district’s financial assistance program and Water Information Program, serves as an alternate for the district on the Water Congress State Affairs Committee, and monitors state water policy. She serves on Water Education Colorado’s board of directors, where she has represented southwestern Colorado for the past year. Laura is also tackling the job of being a parent to an almost one-year-old son, a new and exciting realm in her life. We asked Laura a few questions about SWCD, its overall influence on public and tribal lands, the programs SWCD is coordinating, and her relationship with Water Education Colorado (WEco).
