CWA Collaborative Workshop: Water Quality in the Lower Arkansas Basin: Impacting your Bottom Line

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 -
09:00am to 04:00pm
Otero Junior College Student Center, La Junta, CO
Water Ripple by C Zavala

The Arkansas River is the economic lifeblood of many Coloradans. As one of the largest river basins in the state, it is quite the “workhorse” as far as rivers and the many competing interests are concerned. Its flows provide water for a broad diversity of agriculture, municipalities, recreationists, wildlife and industry uses. However, decades of utilizing the state’s most important resource have taken a toll on “The Ark”. Changes in water rights, non-point source and point source pollution have had cumulative effects on water quality and further impact the uses of Arkansas River water. Concentrations of selenium and nutrients have become more prevalent and the economic impact from these pollutants may affect producers’ bottom lines. 

Tickets are FREE but RSVP is required.

A complimentary lunch will be served during the workshop.
