Like most Coloradans, Denver Water employees are extremely active, spending their free time out in the fresh air and enjoying the unparalleled beauty and adventure found right in our own backyard.

These 30-second videos highlight a few of Denver Water’s connections to Colorado’s No. 1 asset: the great outdoors. Check ‘em out:

Friday night lights: James Walker, conservation technician, spends his days teaching the community about water efficiency and his nights outside coaching some of Colorado’s finest young men on the gridiron — a grassy arena made possible by good ol’ H2O.

Passion for the river: CEO Jim Lochhead has dedicated his career to water in the West, and that includes rafting the rapids and sleeping next to river banks.

Hitting the slopes: As a climate scientist, Laurna Kaatz knows all about our snowpack, including how to put it to good use on the slopes before it reaches your tap.

Here fishy, fishy: Moving water through our reservoirs to benefit the fisheries and environment has a special meaning to an avid fisherman like Dave Bennett, water resource manager.
