Two workshops were held in late November of 1977 under sponsorship by the Colorado Water Conservation Board and the Colorado Drought Council. They were planned and conducted jointly by the Colorado Water Resources Research Institute and the Colorado Cooperative Extension Service. The workshops were held November 28 in Grand Junction and November 29 in Denver to explore several key questions relative to the drought experienced in Colorado during the preceding months. Included in the goals of the workshops were: to learn what emergencies occurred, what steps were taken to solve particular problems, what might have been tried, what legal constraints and institutional problems were encountered, and what preparations ought to be made to better meet future drought emergencies.
