September 18, 2018 — Recovery to Resilience Flood Tour
Tour Overview: Water Education Colorado is excited to offer a 5th anniversary, full-day tour of the 2013 flood-affected zone along the Front Range (to begin and end in Loveland). The 2013 floods wreaked havoc on communities, claimed 10 lives, destroyed homes and businesses, and resulted in billions of dollars of damage. Since then, local community members, nonprofit organizations, coalitions and consultants, along with local, state and federal agency officials have collaborated on a number of multiobjective recovery projects throughout the area. On September 18, jump on the bus with lawmakers, water managers, attorneys, engineers and members of the public to get an up-close look at a few of these important projects. Participants will learn about the initial actions that were taken to protect lives and property as well as the subsequent projects that were undertaken to recover and build resilience.
Tour Goals: 1) Informed Coloradans: Help interested citizens, elected officials and community leaders gain insight into the 2013 flood recovery efforts, including
funding sources, successes, challenges and lessons learned.
2) Collaboration: Demonstrate the importance of strategic partnerships in completing these multi-objective recovery and restoration projects. Show how various sectors (agriculture, municipal water supply, recreation, tourism, environment, local business, etc.) were impacted during the floods and how voices from these sectors were included in the recovery process.
3) New perspective: Bring diverse audiences together to learn from one another and foster future collaborations.
Participation in the Flood Recovery field trip is $90 for Water Education Colorado members, $105 for nonmembers; online registration and more information is at https://www.watereducationcolorado.org/flood-tour/?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm/event/register&id=229&reset=1

Double Tree Hotel, 501 Camino Del Rio, Durango, CO 81301
The fee of $300 includes snacks, lunch, class notes, and PDH certificate
This two-day course will provide a review of single and two-phase hydraulics phenomena along with modeling approaches to calculate pressure/temperature profiles, pressure losses and flow rates along a production system. Furthermore, topics related to pipeline flow control, materials, pipeline integrity and corrosion will be covered. This course will provide a refresher in fluid mechanics as it applies to real world pipeline design and operations. Flow phenomena that relate to hydrate formation, pressure surges, wax deposition and other flow assurance issues will be discussed. The transient multiphase flow simulator, OLGA, will be introduced and used to show several flow assurance modeling examples. Although many formulas and equations will be introduced, the course will concentrate on how these are applied to the solution of actual pipeline transportation problems.

Environmental Management of Colorado Water Resources in the Agriculture, Mining, Oil & Gas, Recreation/Tourism Sectors
Thursday, October 4th, 8 am-5 pm
Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver, CO

Colorado’s economy is one of the best in the nation due to our unique position as a headwaters state, which drives growth in water-dependent market sectors such as agriculture, mining, oil and gas, and recreation/tourism. Each of these sectors depends on a plentiful supply of good-quality water for beneficial use and growth, and each sector produces used water that must be managed in order not to impact downstream users. With a backdrop of climate change, population growth, and multiple overlapping regulatory programs, environmental professionals are constantly faced with an evolving and challenging environment in which to ensure water resources are managed responsibly. This conference will explore similarities and differences in how these market sectors manage water supply, water use, water treatment, and water disposal.

SESSION 1: Chemical Fingerprinting
March 29 Part 1. Comprehensive Chemical Fingerprinting
March 30 Part 2. Chiral Fingerprinting and Signature Chemicals
SESSION 2: Isotopic Fingerprinting
April 19 Part 1. Methods Based on Stable Isotopes
April 20 Part 2. Methods Based on Radioisotopes
SESSION 3: Emerging Methods
April 24 Part 1. Tree-Ring Fingerprinting and Other Advances
"Fingerprinting" unlocks the mystery of contaminant source identification, age-dating and allocation. Laboratory and field advances are redefining environmental forensics for a spectrum of contaminants (e.g., crude oil & distillates, chlorinated solvents, metals, PCBs, PAHs, perchlorate, nutrients).
These advances are capable of revealing multiple releases in common chemistry conditions. Emerging technologies are being used today for more applications, with more certainty and more financial assurances. Technology has progresses since the times we could simply differentiate old contamination from newer releases.
Legal arguments are part of environmental forensics as much as technology. Defending or arguing against a fingerprinting process contains hidden challenges that are known to attorneys and expert witnesses. Don't be ill-prepared for a fingerprinting project that will be scrutinized by others.
Learn how environmental forensics are reaping financial benefits by improved remediation accuracy. Fingerprinting advances are becoming less expensive with more applications and purpose. An investment in fingerprinting contaminants is a key element for remediation system design because it confirms certainty, purpose, and success metrics.
This online course features exercises of common scenarios that teach the principles of environmental forensics. Starting with exercises about reconstructing past contamination events and continuing with recognizing defensible evidence that withstands legal scrutiny.
This online course will help environmental professionals at every level, including environmental consultants, regulators, industrial site owners and operators (e.g., manufacturers, mining companies, foundry operators, refineries, dry cleaners), insurance agency employees, environmental lawyers, and governmental employees.

Shifting and increasing populations, as well as changing weather patterns, have garnered greater attention to where the world will obtain its water supplies both now and in the future. Increase your general knowledge about groundwater, its movement, vulnerabilities, and sustainability during this online offering that serves as both a primer and a refresher course and that addresses topics such as:
How do groundwater and surface water differ and what is the impact of their interaction?
What is a water budget?
What are permeability and porosity and how does each affect groundwater flow?
When and to what constituents is groundwater most vulnerable

The Board of Examiners has initiated a Rulemaking process to clarify Rule 6.3 “Prior Notice of Dewatering Well, Monitoring and Observation Hole, and Test Hole of the Construction Rules” (2 CCR 402-2). The proposed rule change clarifies that a notice of intent must be provided prior to the construction of any dewatering well or monitoring and observation hole, not just those that penetrate through a confining layer. The rule change is meant to eliminate any potential for confusion, but does not change the substance or requirements of the existing rule. Staff of the Board of Examiners held a public stakeholder meeting to discuss a proposed change to Rule 6.3 on Tuesday February 27, 2018.
Please review the proposed language on the following page and provide any comments by the end of business March 16, 2018. Comments can be submitted through the “BOE Info/News” at AskDWR (http://www.dwr.state.co.us/OnlineTools/AskDWR.aspx) or by email to Kevin.Donegan@state.co.us.
