Wednesday Lecture SeriesDave Gunderson: “The Colorado River – Our Heritage and Future"
Santiago Hall 109
November 14, 2018, 4:45pm - 6:00pm
One of the greatest assets we have Southwest is the Colorado River. Without it, life in Arizona, California and Nevada would not exist as we know it. The river’s history, infrastructure development, politics and future will be covered followed by a 5-7 minute Q&A session.
Dave Gunderson worked on the Colorado River for 25 years. He worked in Operations, Maintenance and Engineering for Hoover Dam. In his last 13 years worked in the support of River Operations in Boulder City. Dave’s focus was to build and support the Data Collection System used to measure and manage the river and the distribution of the water. He spent considerable time in the field from farmer’s fields to mountain top communication sites. Now retired after 41 years of Federal Service, he’s learning how to golf.
