Video Series - "Your Water Table - Finding Common Ground Around our Rivers"

The Yampa - White - Green Basin Round Table and American Rivers worked together to produce six videos that cover topics of:

  1. The Yampa River’s Hydrograph
  2. Municipal and Industrial Water Use
  3. Storage: Our Place in the Water Cycle
  4. Agriculture in the Basin
  5. Recreation and Wildlife
  6. White River Basin  

Each of these topics and subtopics talked about in each video episode touch on issues, threats and opportunities facing our local water resources in the Yampa, White and Green River Basins.
