GES 180A4 - Water Sustainability in the Western US

Semester, Days, Time: 
Fall 2018, MW
Course Description: 

Sustainable water use is one of the most pressing problems facing our region. This vital resource sustains municipal drinking water, agriculture, recreation opportunities, habitat, and even Colorado’s robust brewery industry. Yet climate change and other human impacts make water increasingly complicated to manage and use sustainably. This course will explore these challenges, as well as water law and the history of water development in the Western US, and acquaint students with the ways in which CSU is involved in efforts to address water sustainability and the many opportunities the university offers to engage in a deeper study of water issues.
