Interior Assistant Secretary Travels to Colorado

Discusses water conservation and drought effects.

On Monday, Interior Department Assistant Secretary for Water and Science Tanya Trujillo returned to Washington, D.C., following a week-long trip to Colorado. Assistant Secretary Trujillo spent time with local water managers and other community leaders to tour key water infrastructure sites to discuss the importance of water management as more severe droughts continue to put areas of the Western U.S. at risk. 

Assistant Secretary Trujillo said of her time in Colorado, “I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to hear directly from those on the frontlines of drought-impacts and discuss how we can best work together to develop additional mitigation strategies to respond to increased risk of drought and changes to precipitation, runoff, and temperatures. Our shared priority is to support efforts to build resilient communities and protect our water supplies for people and the natural environment.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Interior Department as solutions are sought for the water needs of the Western U.S.
  • That Assistant Secretary Trujillo would seek God’s direction to improve the conditions in Colorado.
  • For Secretary Deb Haaland as she leads the Interior Department.
