Our northern Colorado community is focused on the impacts of the Cameron Peak, East Troublesome, Mullen, and other 2020 wildfires. As concerns over the potential degradation of our water resources grow, some may wonder if the size and severity of these fires could have been mitigated. Ben Gannon studied the potential benefits of proactively reducing forest fuels and improving fire containment to mitigate wildfire risk to water supplies. “There is no silver bullet,” he says, addressing wildfire risk takes diverse strategies.

Bob Longenbaugh‘s life work is deeply tied to the history of water research and education at Colorado State University. He graduated from CSU in 1957 and the same day he was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Air Force as a meteorologist. Bob returned to CSU for an MS degree in soil and water management. He then became tenured as faculty in Civil Engineering where he received awards and recognition for his research on water issues, irrigation, and work with farmers and politicians across the state and nation.
