Christina Burri is a watershed scientist at Denver Water. She works to inventory, protect, and improve the 2.5 million acres of watershed area in Denver Water’s collection system. She also leads Denver Water’s innovative watershed management and planning efforts, including forest health investments. As part of this effort, Christina manages the “From Forests to Faucets Partnership,” a $96 million agreement between Denver Water, the U.S. Forest Service, Colorado State Forest Service, Colorado Forest Restoration Institute, and Natural Resources Conservation Service to improve the health of Colorado’s forests and watersheds.
Christina will share about Denver Water's proactive investments in watershed health, and the lessons learned from past fires. Denver Water is experiencing a return on investment through forest and watershed health commitments, and Christina will explain why investing in forest and watershed health is a smart business decision for Denver Water. Christina will provide a summary of the long-term costs of being reactive after catastrophic wildfires, and what Denver Water is doing to recover after past fires. The participants will learn why it matters to invest in forest and watershed health, and how connections can be made across all levels of government to leverage resources for watershed investments.
