Here's a short report from the American Water Works Association's Water Quality Technology Conference & Exposition here in Denver. From the article, "Sustainable water resources, aging infrastructure, emerging contaminants and simultaneous compliance were just a few of the topics highlighted at the Opening General Session of the American Water Works Association's Water Quality Technology Conference & Exposition (WQTC) Monday at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. Sally Gutierrez, national risk management research laboratory director for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), discussed the importance of addressing challenges to sustainable water resources management, including population growth, urbanization, water scarcity and climate change. 'Sustainability of water resources is a global issue with tremendous challenges,' Gutierrez told a standing-room only crowd. 'It's important we look at those challenges to ensure the greatest possibility for future generations to enjoy clean drinking water.' Gutierrez outlined the practical challenges facing water utilities today, including more stringent regulations, emerging contaminants, aging infrastructure and security concerns. She also discussed EPA's interest in emerging contaminants like perchlorate and endocrine disruptors."

How much Arkansas River water does Colorado owe Kansas? A U.S. Supreme Court special master is expected to rule soon, according to the Pueblo Chieftain. From the article, "Colorado officials are awaiting a ruling by a Supreme Court special master to see if Kansas is owed water under the Arkansas River Compact. The difference between a credit for Colorado or a payment in liquid assets to Kansas is about 10,000 acre-feet, based on a diversion of return flows from the Fort Lyon Canal by the Amity Canal in August 1997, attorney Dennis Montgomery told Colorado Compact commissioners Wednesday after a telephone meeting with Kansas."
