DARCA aims to be the definitive resource for information exchange. The Spring of 2020 has taught us here at DARCA to go beyond the normal ways to share information.
We can't wait for you to join our webinar series!
Drought and Water Update
The Webinar includes a Colorado Water and Drought Update from State Climatologist, Russ Schumacher. Through the briefing, Schumacher discusses the seasonal effects of SNOTEL and the rainfall averages. With a greater snowpack from this winter, there are some offsets from last summer's drought climates but runoff will still be reduced especially in southern basins.
CWC Legislative Update
DARCA welcomes the Colorado Water Congress (CWC) for a legislative update from Diana Orf and Doug Kemper. DARCA is actively engaged in the Colorado State Affairs Committee through CWC. This webinar highlights the past legislative session, what the summer of 2020 looks like for the water bills, and what is expected in the upcoming session.
Economics and Market Update
DARCA's third webinar includes a COVID-19 Economy update from Tom Lipetsky, the Colorado Department of Agriculture Market's Director. DARCA had the privilege of welcoming Mr. Lipetsky to the annual conference in March before the full effects of COVID-19 affected Colorado. Tom joined us again to summarize economic shifts, how stakeholders in both Agriculture and Natural resources are responding, and what the Colorado Department of Agriculture has done to offset some of the major effects since the beginning of the pandemic.

811 Legislation Update
As DARCA continues in its mission and vision one of the largest topics from members and non-members alike is the 811 One Call Law and its implications for water delivery systems. During this webinar, we heard a very important update and were able to collaborate with other water users who are at navigating these same issues.
