Partnering to use, move and protect water in Colorado and the West has been occurring since the first humans set foot in these arid lands. Water partnerships may not have always been easy to form or smooth to maintain, but they make for some interesting stories. In modern times, partnerships prove essential to any watery endeavor, whether irrigating crops, saturating cities or protecting nature. At Water Tables 2015, more than twenty water leaders from Colorado and beyond will host table discussions on a mix of historical lessons, professional experiences and potential future needs, all related to partnerships. Come partner with the Water Resources Archive and join the discussion!
The Water Resources Archive preserves materials critical for documenting the state's water history. It is Colorado's only archive dedicated to water issues. The ever-growing contents of the Archive serve as a living repository for the history of public policy, engineering, law, ecology, economics, and the cultural aspects of water use. Funds raised from Water Tables support the Archive's efforts to preserve and make available over 90 collections important to the water heritage of Colorado and the West, including outreach activities, digitization projects, and several student assistants.
