"Water for a Growing City"
History Colorado Center
1200 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203
July 21, 2015
7pm

Before the people of Denver purchased the water distribution system in 1918, numerous private water companies served the city. Starting in the late 1880s, the base of Platte Cañon (now known at Waterton Canyon) became the location for water storage and a variety of water filtration methods. This presentation will discuss the early Denver water system, the different types of water filtration, and the development by Denver Union Water Company of the company town of Kassler in the early 1900s. Join staff from Denver Water to hear the history of how Denver focused on safe drinking water.

The Great Divide, a feature length documentary film from the Emmy award winning team of Havey Productions, in association with Colorado Humanities, will illustrate the timeless influence of water in both connecting and dividing an arid state and region. From Ancient Puebloan cultures and the gold rush origins of Colorado water law to agriculture, dams, diversions and conservation; the film will reveal today’s critical need to cross “the great divide,” replacing conflict with cooperation.
