Water 101 Workshop set for Oct. 8

The Water Information Program (WIP) and San Juan Citizens Alliance will sponsor the Fifth Annual “Water 101” Workshop on Friday, Oct. 8, at the Bayfield Town Hall, 11 West Mill St. The daylong affair will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and include lunch, a snack and information packet.

According to WIP Coordinator Denise Rue-Pastin, workshop topics will cover Colorado water administration, development, history, and regulation — thus providing attendees a basic understanding of water law and related issues. A host of qualified speakers will include Colorado Supreme Court Justice Gregory Hobbs.

This Water 101 workshop will provide attorneys seven credits of “continuing legal education,” while approval for Realtor continuing education is still pending. Historically, Realtors have received three or four credits of continuing ed by attending Water 101 workshops.

The early registration fee is $32 if enrolled by Sept. 30. Subsequent registrations, including those signing up at the door, can expect to pay $37.
