8:30–9:45 a.m. Colorado has 165 times as many residents today as it had in 1861, but no more water than it had in those early days of settlement — and much of it must be shared with residents of other states. Meanwhile, new uses and priorities for water allocation continue to emerge, creating ever more intricate legal processes for sharing this limited and most vital resource.
