The Colorado Water Innovation Cluster (CWIC) recently received a grant from the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) to complete the Lake Canal Alternative Practices and In-stream Flow Demonstration Project. The project will address the municipal, industrial and environmental water gap during irrigation season in the Lake Canal area.
With new technology from Regenesis, a CWIC member, researchers will demonstrate how irrigation transfers from agriculture-use to urban-use can be achieved without sacrificing local food production.
The grant helps the CWIC reach their goals of project-oriented partnerships among a variety of organizations and development of innovative water technologies by local companies. Collaboration and research are hallmarks of the Lake Canal project and will likely prove to be replicable for other communities.
