Trampe Receives Prestigious 2015 Aspinall Award

In January 2015 the Colorado Water Congress (CWC) awarded Bill Trampe, a life-long Gunnison Rancher and Colorado water advocate, the 2015 Wayne N. Aspinall “Water Leader of the Year” Award. The Aspinall Award is given annually in recognition of a career of service and contribution to Colorado’s water community. It is awarded to a person who has dedicated a significant part of his or her career to the advancement of the state and its programs to protect, develop, and preserve the state’s water resources. Trampe was selected for the award by the previous Aspinall Award winners and CWC officers. CWC Board President, John McClow, said: “Bill Trampe’s leadership and original thinking in water and agriculture have had a tremendous positive impact in our community and the entire state. His modesty, wisdom and tireless commitment to achieving the best result, even when there is strong resistance, inspires everyone who has the opportunity to work with him.”

August 25, 2014--How the West was sunk? (Pueblo Chieftain)

Drought is nothing new to the arid West. Vast swatches of Colorado burned in 2012-13, and California, Oregon and Washington are experiencing one of the worst fire seasons in history this year. In the Colorado River basin, Lake Mead is at the lowest levels since it first filled, while Lake Powell is approaching levels too low to generate power.

August 24, 2014--Hickenlooper: No water brawls (Pueblo Chieftain)

Whatever else is in it, the biggest element of Colorado’s water plan will be cooperation. “Water can either divide or unite us. In the end, it’s our choice,” Gov. John Hickenlooper told the Colorado Water Congress last week.
