State Of The River Meetings: Colorado River

April 1 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Every year, the Colorado River District works with its partners to host educational meetings about water issues in each river basin in the 15-county district.

At these meetings, you can enjoy free food and refreshments and learn more about the water we all rely on. Local experts present on how much water we expect to see in local rivers, ditches and reservoirs as well as up to date information about regional, statewide and local water issues.

If you’re interested in water as an irrigator, angler, boater or water provider, be sure to attend an upcoming event! We are actively planning State of the River events now. More details will be released about a State of the River in your area soon.
