Interactive video lesson plan for: Colorado's New Water Plan: What Comes Next?

Activity overview:

Water is an essential policy issue in Colorado and will become even more important as the state continues to attract new residents. Within the next few decades, even assuming aggressive conservation and the completion of dozens of water projects currently being considered, the state could face an annual shortfall of more than 500,000 acre feet.

The state completed its first comprehensive water plan in December 2015. James Eklund, main author of that report, presented highlights of the plan and potential impediments to its realization. Panelists commented on different aspects of the plan and its implementation challenges.

Panelists included: Blaine Dwyer, Vice President at HDR, Inc., and Intermountain Infrastructure Exchange (IMX) strategic consultant; James Eklund, Director of Colorado Water Conservation Board, and main author of the new water plan; Terry Fankhauser, Executive VP of the Colorado Cattleman’s Association.

Dr. Tanya Heikkila, CU Denver School of Public Affairs and Buechner Institute for Governance, served as the moderator.
