2018 FALL CONFERENCE – Environmental Management of Colorado Water Resources in the Agriculture, Mining, and Recreation Sectors

Thursday, October 4th, 7:30am – 6pm, Bud Light Champions Club at Broncos Stadium at Mile High

CEMS is pleased to announce that Mr. Patrick Davis, Senior Advisor to the Regional Administrator for Public Engagement, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, has been confirmed as a Keynote Speaker for the upcoming Fall Conference!

CONFERENCE OVERVIEW: Colorado’s economy depends on our unique position as a headwaters state, which drives growth in water-dependent market sectors such as agriculture, mining, and recreation. Each of these sectors depends on a plentiful supply of good-quality water for beneficial use and growth, and each sector produces used water that must be managed in order not to impact downstream users. With a backdrop of climate change, population growth, and multiple overlapping regulatory programs, environmental professionals are constantly faced with an evolving and challenging environment in which to ensure water resources are managed responsibly. This conference will explore similarities and differences in how these market sectors manage water supply, water use, water treatment, and water disposal.

CEMS has received seven (7) general CLE credits for this Conference
