David Owens'
Where the Water Goes:
Life and Death Along the Colorado River

Tuesday, April 17th at noon
Fireside Room, Driscoll North

The Colorado River is an essential resource for a surprisingly large part of the United States, and every gallon that flows down it is owned or claimed by someone. David Owen traces all that water from the Colorado’s headwaters to its parched terminus, once a verdant wetland but now a million-acre desert. He takes readers on an adventure downriver, along a labyrinth of waterways, reservoirs, power plants, farms, fracking sites, ghost towns, and RV parks, to the spot near the U.S.–Mexico border where the river runs dry.
An interview with the author, as featured on "Colorado Matters", can be heard here.

Co-facilitator will be Prof. Tom Romero of the Sturm College of Law
