Aftermath Sessions Discuss Impacts of Wildfires

March 9 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Assessing our Watersheds and Launching our Recovery

In late 2020, the two largest wildfires in Colorado history burned hundreds of thousands of forested acres in Northern Colorado. The region’s water users may face years of uncertainty regarding the quality and quantity of native supplies, as well as water from the Colorado-Big Thompson and Windy Gap projects. This is truly a watershed moment.

In early December, Northern Water launched a series of “Aftermath” sessions that will discuss the impacts of the year’s consequential fires: Cameron Peak, East Troublesome, Calwood and Left Hand, and how these consequential fires may relate to the availability of regional water supplies in 2021 and beyond.

Aftermath #2 Session

Tuesday, March 9, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.Northern Water will present the second in its Aftermath series to discuss the next steps toward assessment and recovery from the East Troublesome fire. The past few months have allowed local stakeholders to talk about the structure for recovery planning and implementation. Local water providers have also heard basin-specific options for water deliveries in 2021 and beyond. While a blanket of fresh snow has covered Grand County, we know from experience, however, that the challenges from the fire are as fierce as ever underneath the veneer of fresh powder. We hope you will join us from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. to hear more about these efforts and to answer your questions about the road ahead. As the date gets near, we will update you with an agenda for the morning’s proceedings. Registrants will be provided with event details and Zoom webinar information the day before the event.
