Water workshop at WSC changing name and date

Brief by Central Staff

Water – December 2006 – Colorado Central Magazine

Some people think that “WWW”stands for World Wide Web, and others know it really stands for Western Water Workshop, almost always held during the last week of July at Western State College in Gunnison (one year it was in August because Hell’s Angels held their national convention in Gunnison in late July).

But things are changing with the arrival of a new director, Pete Lavigne, who took over this fall from George Sibley. He says it’s the “same workshop you’ve always loved,”but in a new month.

It’s now the “Colorado Water Workshop,”and it will be held May 22-24 in 2007. The topic is “A Watershed-wide Look at Colorado River Controversies.”

If you’ve got questions, you can reach Lavigne at 970-943-3162 or plavigne@ western.edu.
