Colorado WaterWise Person of the Year
Anyone in water conservation knows of the legendary Liz Gardener. Liz has always led the pack when it comes to water conservation. Because of her forward thinking and passion for Colorado, the Colorado WaterWise organization was formed in 2000. Liz’s achievements were recognized at the Colorado WaterWise annual event on September 24th as the first recipient of the Colorado WaterWise Person of the Year Award. This award will be given annually in recognition of outstanding accomplishments in the water conservation field, excellent work ethics, job performance, and a distinguished record of dedication, cooperation, and professionalism as a wise steward of Colorado water. There was no question or discussion as to who should receive this first award. Liz has served as a leader and mentor for many in the field and continues to be a resource to us all.
