Colorado Edition: Still Feeling The Impact
Today on Colorado Edition: We explore the impact of the prolonged warming and drying trend across the Southwest that has left the nation's two largest reservoirs at record lows. We hear about a foreclosure auction for a large outdoor retail center that drew no bidders. Then, we learn about a new effort at the Denver Zoo to vaccinate many of its animals against COVID-19. And finally, we discuss how Colorado’s historic wildfires last year are impacting water quality in 2021.
Today’s guests include: Ken Amundson, managing editor at BizWest; and Jill Oropeza, water quality services manager for the City of Fort Collins. Today’s show features reporting from KUNC arts and culture reporter Stacy Nick; and KUNC's Western Water reporter Luke Runyon.
