OWOW Highlight of the Month: Patrick Nicholson 

Patrick Nicholson is senior at MSU Denver majoring in Land Use - Environment & Resources and is the current President of the Water Association of Student Stewards Urban Program (WASSUP). The organization allows students to gain a hands-on perspective of water issues and culture while creating opportunities to serve and network within the water community. In November, Patrick started an internship at the Colorado Water Trust, the only non-profit organization working statewide to transact water deals for conservation benefits. As their Communications Intern he helps to strategize, develop and shape the organization's digital channels while utilizing his understanding of water resources. In his free time, Patrick can likely be found on a ski-slope or a hiking trail. 

What records are available to water researchers and where are they?


The Colorado State Archives is hosting a water webinar on March 26, 2014 at 2:00p.m. This is an opportunity to provide researchers with a brief summary of water collections held by 8 select repositories. This webinar is considered a launching point regarding a statewide effort to:

  • Develop a Water Records Task Force which will plan a statewide web site, social media outlet and a consortium for information dissemination and discussion about water records.
  • Develop collaborations with the water community and policy makers so that water records may be preserved, described and made more accessible.

This webinar will provide researchers with a brief summary of water record collections held by 8 repositories including:

  • Colorado State Archive
  • CSU Water Resources Archive
  • Colorado State Supreme Court Library
  • Colorado Division of Water Resources
  • Denver Water Department
  • National Archives
  • Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District
  • History Colorado
