The Colorado Ag Water Alliance (CAWA) hosted it's bi-annual Ag Water Summit on December 2-3, 2019 in Loveland at the Ranch. The theme of the conference is “Phase II: Implementing the Colorado Water Plan."  Presentations and panel sessions will focus on where agriculture fits into infrastructure improvement, water quality, healthy rivers, the Colorado River Compact, and implementing the goals in the Water Plan.  Go to for more details.
