Event Details

Mark your calendar for Tuesday, February 25th @ 6:00pm, when we will be screening “Western Water and Power,” a new episode of the RMPBS show The Colorado ExperienceThe Colorado Experience is an award-winning half-hour documentary series on RMPBS that explores Colorado history and culture. Since 2015, our office has helped to produce the “road show,” which tours statewide and celebrates Colorado history and original television content.

In this 60-minute episode you’ll learn how ever since Western settlers dreamed of deserts in bloom, men have chased the mirage of more water than these arid lands can provide.  “Whiskey is for drinking and water is for fighting” describes the urgent struggle every generation of Coloradans faces to control this fleeting resource — creating hydrodynamic history through structures that can propel water to run uphill toward money, and power.

This event is free and open to the public, at Western Colorado University Cinema.
