Description

What ways can we preserve groundwater and farming for the future?

The Colorado Ag Water Alliance (CAWA) and Republican River Water Conservation District are bringing together producers from different parts of the West to discuss their experience with groundwater conservation and efficiency. With more stress on water supplies, more people will continue to look to ag a source of water and it’s our job to continue being responsible stewards of Colorado’s most valuable resource.
