Virtual Event

“Water is emerging as one of the most important and controversial subjects to be addressed in the 21st century. Water issues are particularly complex, and understanding the nuances is critical for good decision-making.”

Water Literate Leaders of Northern Colorado Program

Confluence: Colorado Water Summit is the only water conference in the region to examine the economic issues surrounding the scarcity of water affecting the growing numbers of residents of the Boulder Valley and Northern Colorado. Confluence will take a deep dive into issues surrounding rising water prices, and will explore the many facets of water availability, cost, conservation, development and supply.

  • How can the region protect its water supplies for the benefit of future generations in the Boulder Valley and Northern Colorado?
  • What effect do rising water prices have on development in the region, including on the cost of housing as the region strives to accommodate an increasing population?

Confluence will provide a unique virtual forum to discuss regional water issues, including cost, availability, storage, agriculture and energy demands, competition for resources and a growing population.
