MONTROSE, COLO – Join Montrose County to discuss water at the third annual West Slope Water Summit on November 16th from 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Montrose County Event Center. Doors open at 9:30 a.m., with presentations starting at 10:00 a.m. The Water Summit is free and includes lunch, but does require registration.

 Speakers at the water summit include Montrose Board of County Commissioners Chair Sue Hansen, Representative Marc Catlin, Andy Mueller with the Colorado River District, Greg Walcher, Author of Why Water Unites & Divides, Aaron Clay, Water Attorney, Jason Ullmann, Deputy State Engineer at the CO Division of Water Resources, and David Meko, Ph.D., Professor at the University of Arizona. Speakers will be addressing key and critical topics such as the status of the Colorado River, water law, how tree-ring data can be used to study the variability of hydroclimate, and the priority system in the Uncompahgre and North Fork Valley.

“The Western Slope is a desert, pure and simple. Sure there are mountains surrounding us, but we are still a semi-high arid desert. Water has always been a critical component of life here and were it not for the Gunnison Tunnel, Montrose and Delta County would be a puff of dust. For these reasons and more we want our residents to be knowledgeable about the place they call home,” said Commissioner Sue Hansen.

For more information and to register online, visit westslopewatersummit.com. You can also register via the phone by calling (970) 249-7755. Local water information and resources are available on montrosecountywater.com.
