Eric Wilkinson, retired general manager of Northern Water, reviews his lifetime as a water professional. After reminiscing about his childhood growing up on a farm with his father who was a Cache la Poudre River commissioner, Wilkinson talks about the importance of collaboration, cooperation, and education surrounding our water resources.

"I think when you look at agriculture in northern Colorado when the settlers first came in there should have been a sign out east that said 'just add water' because when you look at the productivity of northern Colorado, particularly Weld County, you can see the value of water to agriculture."

This video is part of the "Water Legacy: Documenting History" series through the Poudre Heritage Alliance and the Colorado State University Water Resources Archive.
