The Great Divide

A Havey Productions Film

Advisory Council

The Advisory Council for The Great Divide was comprised of a diverse group of Colorado water experts. Members represented agricultural, environmental, municipal and recreational water interests throughout the state. The Council’s primary purpose was to advise the production team to ensure the film presents a fair and accurate portrayal of Colorado’s water heritage and has long term value in educating the public on the past, present and future of our state’s most precious resource.
