Bartlett to Head CAWA


Charlie Bartlett, Merino area farmer and current board member of the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee, was recently elected Chair of the Colorado Ag Water Alliance (CAWA). John Stencel, former president of Rocky Mountain Farmer’s Union, was elected Vice-Chair. Both will serve a one-year term.

The CAWA is unique in that its membership is comprised of producers and  executives of agricultural organizations who are committed to the preservation of irrigated agriculture, spanning all watersheds, and most agricultural sectors in Colorado.

When asked about his involvement  Bartlett responded, “I’m excited to help educate people about  water usage in Colorado. CAWA is an organization that represents all facets of agriculture. It provides and promotes a cooperative venue for industrial,  municipal, and agricultural  water users to come together in order to protect this important natural resource.”
