This summer's theme is Oceans of Possibilities and its time to understand where our water comes from. Snowmelt runoff into local streams provides the majority of water supply in Summit County. And when the Blue River flows beyond county boundaries, its waters continue downstream to feed the Colorado River, one of the most critical sources of water in the West. In this session, High Country Conservation Center Staff will help attendees understand where our water comes from and the impact drought and heat are having on this important resource. Learn about local conservation programs and water efficient rebates to help you become water smart.
