Officials this week say Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming must figure out how to use 15% less water. The US Department of the Interior has declared the first-ever tier 2 shortage for the Colorado River.

This means less water for agriculture​. This is an ongoing issue, and short-term and long-term solutions are needed.

During our webinar, Jeff Tuel and Richard Restuccia will discuss the current situation and, more importantly, some short and long-term solutions to improve agriculture and landscaping and secure a long-term water future for the West.

During this webinar, you will learn:

  1. The current dire water situation in the West
  2. The recent restrictions being placed on agricultural and urban water 
  3. Why the restrictions are falling short
  4. How technology can improve the situation
  5. Steps you can take to improve the current water shortage
