Visit this incredible new laboratory where Denver Water performs more than 70,000 tests annually to monitor water quality in its watershed as well as its treatment and distribution systems CSU Spur provides more opportunities for Denver Water to collaborate with researchers on areas of innovation, policy, and education related to water challenges in urban, rural, and watershed environments. The new laboratory has the capacity to conduct more than 200,000 tests each year to keep up with increasing regulatory requirements and allows for more state-of-the-art equipment and more efficient workspace for technicians.
12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join the USDA-funded Secure Water Future (SWF) team for a workshop about emerging digital tools for effective water management in water-scarce regions. With your registration and attendance, you will receive access to the SWF-hosted happy hour!
1:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Water availability during periods of low streamflow is critical for water management but streamflow forecasts are not available for many smaller rivers and streams in the United States. The baseflow separation model BFS recently released by US Geological Survey (USGS) can be used to forecast low flows during dry periods and, thus, the worst-case scenario for water availability. BFS is implemented in the statistical computing language R as a series of functions using only a time series of observed daily streamflow as input. BFS has been automated to download streamflow and model parameters for more than 13,000 streamflow gages. The forecasting capability of the model will be demonstrated at the workshop along with a hands-on tutorial for workshop participants with a computer that has the R or RStudio application and access to the internet. Calibration issues will be discussed along with approaches for re-calibration to improve model performance for different applications.
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
