New CW3E Award Represented at the Colorado River District’s State of the River Event

March 27, 2023

Colorado River District hosted the State of the River – Upper Yampa event on March 23, 2023, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, with roughly 100 attendees. Madison Muxworthy, of Yampa Valley Sustainability Council, spoke on behalf of the project team working on Enhancing Soil Moisture Observations to Support Water Resource Management in the Upper Yampa River Basin. This project is led by PI Dr. Martin Ralph and includes staff from the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes, Yampa Valley Sustainability Council, Colorado Mountain College, and Upper Yampa Water Conservancy District. The presentation focused on the future expansion of the Yampa Basin soil moisture monitoring network over the next three years, made possible by recent grant funding from Colorado River District’s Community Funding Partnership, Colorado Water Conservation District’s Water Plan Grant, and Upper Yampa Water Conservancy District. CW3E is really excited to be working with a group of stellar partners on such an impactful project to support robust monitoring in the region.
