From Climate Change Planning to Response: Drought, Wildfire, and Water Management in 2020

Tuesday, September 29 10 a.m.

Colorado is experiencing its worst drought conditions since 2012 as 100% of the state is experiencing some level of drought, with 93% of the state under at least severe drought conditions as of August 25th. For only the 2nd time ever the main stretch of the Yampa River is under water usage restrictions. The Pine Gulch fire has grown into the largest wildfire in Colorado’s history. This new reality requires a shift in thinking from not just preparing for the future impacts of climate change, but responding to these challenges today. In this webinar, we’ll hear from a leading scientist about the state of climate science in Colorado and if these events we’re experiencing this summer are harbingers of a changing climate. We’ll also hear from water providers about how they’re responding to local water shortages, wildfires, and other climate-related events, and how they’re building resilience in their communities to future climate impacts. Join us for a highly interactive discussion about how Colorado’s water managers are facing climate change head on to protect our communities.
