Water // The mystery behind the tap

Another short film by Alex Suber and Julian Kraus-Polk about our water resources on the Front Range. Frank Kinder speaks about issues of water scarcity in this region. The film also includes footage of two Colorado College graduates as they float from source to sea down the Colorado River, one of the most contested water resources in the world.

The Water Conservation Specialist with Colorado Springs Utilities, Frank Kinder, speaks about the extensive system that we have engineered to transport water to Colorado Springs and the rest of the Front Range. Frank describes how the system moves water 200 miles, from areas such as Aspen and Breckenridge, displacing it from its native watershed on the western side of the continental divide.
