Webinar: Ag Infrastructure: Keeping It Going on November 10th

Webinar with Water Education Colorado on improving water infrastructure in the Ag community

Deteriorating ditches, diversion structures, and reservoirs mean that some ag water never reaches the crops it’s intended for—but Coloradans across the state are assessing the challenges and making costly ag infrastructure repairs with positive results. Join the Colorado Ag Water Alliance and Water Education Colorado for this webinar to hear how major projects are being implemented throughout the state. We’ll hear how producers are using loans and self-financing large projects, tapping into available federal funds, working with other stakeholder groups, and creating inventories of ditches to secure project funding. With Speakers: Paul Kehmeier, Rancher; Salinity Coordinator, Colorado Department of Agriculture Scott Jones, Rancher; President, Eagle County Conservation District Emma Reesor, Executive Director, Rio Grande Headwaters Restoration Project Robert Sakata, Farmer; President, Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association
