2009 Arkansas River Basin Water Forum: Water to Fuel Our Future will explore water-energy connections


The 2009 Arkansas River Basin Water Forum will take place in Pueblo, Colo., March 31 to April 1.

Keynote speaker Jennifer Gimbel, Director of the Colorado Water Conservation Board, will kick off a conference designed to promote open dialogue among water users, creating a greater understanding of water issues affecting the Arkansas River watershed from the headwaters to the state line.

In addition to updates on the Arkansas Basin Round Table and from the various Water Conservancy Districts, presentation topics will include Energy and Water Nexus, Drought and Climate Change Risk Preparedness, Invasive Species, Fountain Creek Vision Task Force, and Lake Pueblo Dam and Reservoir.

Thursday's luncheon speaker will be author/historian Joanne Dodds, who will bring alive the history of the region. Field trips will include the Xeriscape Garden at the Southeastern Colorado Water Conservancy District and the Steelworks Museum of Industry and Culture, located at the historic CF&I Steel site.

The forum provides a friendly, constructive atmosphere where individuals and organizations explain their views and engage in open dialogue with other water users from all parts of the basin including agricultural, municipal, industrial, environmental, recreational and governmental interests.

Past forums have resulted in a wider understanding of water issues, contributing to wise decision-making that serves the common good for all who call the Arkansas River Basin their home.

The forum also features an art and photography contest for grades K-12 and an open photography contest.
