Colorado River Compact

  • The western slope has been working to fulfill obligations to the Colorado River Compact, including reducing salinity in the irrigation water that we percolate back down to the river, for populations downstream. A recent conference in Las Vegas was a reckoning for many water users signing on to participate in preserving this precious resource. Kate Redmond reports. Thursday's commemorations of the January 6th riot included a rousing floor speech by Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet.
