Climate Change, Mitigation & Colorado Water webinarOnline webcast
Colorado's warming future brings with it projected impacts to water supplies. Water providers and users are taking measures to adapt—but is the water sector doing enough to curb the effects of climate change? Through this webinar, we'll explore the projections for Colorado's water future, state-level policy initiatives that aim to mitigate climate change, and we'll hear about inspiring mitigation work from Denver Water, and the City of Grand Junction's biogas project at its wastewater treatment plant.
