It is clear Colorado will need to invest billions, some estimate as much as $7 billion, to improve water efficiency throughout many different industries, applications and technologies.
Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
Infocast, the leading producer of business intelligence and networking events, is pleased to announce the inaugural Colorado Water Summit. The event will take place in Denver, Colorado, on March 3-4, 2014.
Water supplies are shrinking, even as demand for water from municipalities, agriculture, industrial, recreation and oil & gas sectors continues to grow rapidly. Shifting patterns of precipitation indicate Colorado is going to be experiencing less rainfall and more constricting supplies going forward. According to the Texas Water Development Board, drought conditions continued to worsen across Texas over the past week and reservoir levels are at the lowest point in more than 20 years.
Colorado seems to be walking down much the same path as Texas. Texas has not only implemented a water plan, but also allocated billions in public money to building up the water infrastructure, and projects are already underway to handle this problem. Colorado has begun taking the preliminary steps to prepare for this issue by ordering the creation of the Colorado Water Plan, the first round of which will come to fruition in December 2014.
It is clear Colorado will need to invest billions, some estimate as much as $7 billion, to improve water efficiency throughout many different industries, applications and technologies. For those who want to understand the new world of water from a user stand point and the potential for funding and private sector investment need to come up to speed with the developments in the Colorado water infrastructure in order to position themselves appropriately as the developments become more concrete and clear.
The Summit will provide a unique forum, focusing exclusively on the state and bringing together all the stakeholders invested in the future of Colorado water as well as, exclusively on the needs, requirements, initiatives, funding sources, technology options critical to solving the future of Colorado’s water infrastructure.
