? Ever since I can remember, water has been integral in my life. I grew up near Lake Michigan and spent summers with my family on lakes in northern Wisconsin.

The coronavirus disruption and subsequent budgetary implications will be a challenge for water users to navigate as we enter this uncertain future.

What value or benefit does being a Colorado AWRA member bring you?  

AWRA-Colorado provides me with the opportunity to network and stay informed about the industry while learning about an array of water resources topics.
