Last summer's high-severity fires have led to the slopes of our watershed becoming unstable and dramatically increasing the risk of erosion, flooding, and damage to our creeks, rivers, and roads, affecting thousands of Coloradoans. Sediment and debris rushing off the slopes of the burn zone end up in our creeks and rivers, which also supports the drinking water for ~300,000 Colorado residents. Our water treatment facilities can't remove all of the sediment. When sediment levels get too high in the river, our local utilities are forced to stop relying on the Poudre for our drinking water.
New nonprofit Run To Do Good of Boulder is hosting a series of five 5k runs in 2013. They are generously contributing all entry fees to support WRV's work restoring areas damaged by wildfire. This, the third fun-run in the series, is specifically to help protect municipal drinking water resources used by approximately 300,000 Coloradoans.
We'd love for you to join the fun and spread the word!
Runs begin at 6:30 pm, but please come early for the vendors and stay after for the post-race party hosted at 303 Vodka. There will be fun and giveaways for all ages!
