Today, as part of Colorado’s Virtual Heritage Journey, hosted by the 3 Colorado National Heritage Areas, we are exploring the basics of Western Water Law.
The Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area was designated as nationally significant in part for the areas role in influencing water development, water law, and water management in the West. In fact, the Poudre River valley has emerged as the leader in western water law management. But, most people do not understand the complexities of our water law and management systems. Stay informed with this short video from the Poudre Heritage Alliance!
Tune in next week for more Virtual Journeys with South Park National Heritage Area on Tuesday, Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area on Wednesday and more from the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area on Thursday.
