The Fork Not Taken

  • History Colorado 1200 Broadway Denver, CO, 80203 United States (map)

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Environmental Policy Act, and to provide a historical lens on several high-profile water projects currently underway, Water Education Colorado together with Colorado Trout Unlimited and the One World One Water Center at Metropolitan State University of Denver are pleased to offer a half-day educational event. The event will tell the story of the EPA’s 1990 veto of one of the largest water projects in Colorado history, and how the Denver metro area has moved forward in the aftermath of the project’s demise.

Following a continental breakfast, the agenda will feature two panel discussions, focusing first on the events leading up to the veto of Two Forks, and then following up with an exploration of what has transpired in the years since that have laid the groundwork for Denver and the surrounding suburbs' evolving approach to providing water to growing communities in an era of increasing water scarcity.

Thank you to our title sponsor, The Byers Group LLC and our breakfast sponsors Denver Water & South Metro Water Supply Authority and to our community sponsors Lamp Rynearson, College of Professional Studies at MSU Denver, American Rivers and HDR.

This is an event any Coloradan who cares about water should attend!
