Poudre Pub Talk: Paying the River Back @ Odell Brewing | Fort Collins | Colorado | United States

As part of an on-going series, the Poudre Heritage Alliance presents monthly educational pub talks at local establishments throughout Northern Colorado.

For our October 10th Pub Talk at Odell Brewing, Kate Ryan from the Colorado Water Trust will be discussing how Poudre water users are collaborating to improve stream flow from Fort Collins to Greeley through the Cache la Poudre River In-stream Flow Augmentation Plan. This on-going project stems from a group of Cache la Poudre River water users in conjunction with the Poudre Runs Through It working group, various state agencies, and the Colorado Water Trust. These organizations are investigating strategies to build a market for adding water to the Cache la Poudre River to sustain flows and improve habitat.

Kate Ryan joined the Water Trust in 2019, with over a decade of experience practicing water law in Colorado. Her past clients included farmers, ranchers, municipalities, landowners, the Colorado Water Conservation Board, and the Colorado Water Trust itself. Before going to Berkeley Law she obtained a master’s degree in geography at the University of Colorado and worked as an associate scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
