Description The Colorado River: Many Uses, Major Problems: Bob Moline (professor emeritus, geography). The Colorado River flows 1,450 miles from northeastern Colorado to the Gulf of California through seven states and two countries, serves water to 25 million people (including Indian tribes) in this arid region, generates electricity for 3 million people, irrigates 3.5 million acres of farmland, and is used for recreation and wildlife habitats. But, there's not enough water in the river to adequately accomplish all of this, resulting in serious water management conflicts. Come on a "field trip" to examine this stunningly beautiful, but grossly overworked river. This event is a Gustavus Adolphus College continuing education program done in cooperation with the St. Peter Community and Family Education program.
