"With the Hydro Building, it'll be a place where we bring together people from a lot of different industries that focus on water, to have conversations around how we solve big water challenges together. We know here in Colorado where water is such a precious resource that we need to come together to solve these problems and hydro is a place for that," said Jocelyn Hittle, CSU Spur Campus Assistant Vice Chancellor.

The Spur Campus is set to open next year.
