After 26 years, Colorado welcomes NALMS back to the headwaters state. Colorado is home to thousands of both natural alpine lakes and reservoirs. We are proud of our mountains and appreciate the importance of our lakes and reservoirs.
In Colorado, water is used for fishing, drinking, farming, rafting, camping, mining, ranching, boating, brewing, and much more. These uses are supported with a statewide annual average rainfall of just 17 inches. The lakes and reservoirs throughout the West and the Rockies provide the resources to meet these diverse needs. Finding balance in how we manage them is important.
Finding Balance is the key to managing our lakes, watersheds, and even day-to-day relationships with
people. Come to NALMS 2017 in Colorado to hear fascinating lake talks, see the mountains, and network.
