Pagosa Springs Water Fluency with Josh Kurz, Teacher & Watershed Scientist!

Learn more about our local water supply on Thursday, October 5th at 6:00pm at the Ruby Sisson Library.

When you turn on a faucet in your home, where does the water come from? Since we live in the headwaters of the San Juan River, we can see our wilderness watersheds from our windshields and we are fortunate to be the first water users in its journey downstream.  Our drinking water may have been frozen in a snowfield on Saddle Mountain, plunged over Treasure Falls, or paused for a few days in Fourmile Lake.  

Many residents in our community can receive water from an elaborate storage and distribution system that was planned, built, and maintained by previous generations.  But how does our local municipal and agricultural water system work, what are the threats to our water supply, and is our current water supply adequate to meet the needs of future generations?  

Learn more about our local water supply by attending the Lifetime Learning Lecture by Josh Kurz, teacher and watershed scientist.  The talk will take place at the Ruby Sisson Library on October 5th from 6:00-7:15 P.M.

I grew up in Montana where my love of the mountains is rooted. I was in the Air Force, forecasting aviation weather, for 24 years. I had eight assignments and my favorites were Colorado, Alaska, Korea, and Germany. I deployed a number of times including to Iraq and Afghanistan. After RV traveling for nine years, we found paradise in Pagosa. Here we enjoy playing outside in the spectacular San Juan mountains!
