Water Tables to celebrate Historic 100

Anne Castle, former Interior Department assistant secretary, will be present the keynote speech at the 2016 Water Tables fundraiser for the CSU Water Resources Archive. The event will take place from 5 to 9:30 p.m.  on Thursday, Jan. 28, at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center.

Castle was Assistant Secretary for Water and Science from 2009 to 2014. During that time, she oversaw water and science policy for Interior, and had responsibility for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Geological Survey.

She will be on hand to help celebrate the Water Resources Archive’s achievement of 100 collections. The theme of Water Tables 2016 is “The Historic One Hundred.”

This year, each table host will discuss one of the  Archive’s collections. Some of the different collections include Friends of the Poudre Records, the Northern Colorado Flood Oral History Collection, the Tom Pitts Papers, and many more.

Registration is $160 per ticket, $75 of which is considered a charitable donation to the Water Resources Archive. Ticket cost includes reception, table discussions, keynote, dinner and dessert.
