• Balancing Values and Needs in Colorado's Water Plan

    Colorado's Water Plan offers a strategic vision for a productive economy that supports vibrant and sustainable cities, productive agriculture, a strong environment, and a robust recreation industry.

  • Preserving What We Love About CO Alongside Population Growth

    Colorado’s water challenges are many and dynamic: population growth, the permanent separation of water from agricultural lands, environmental stress, sustained and systemic drought, destructive wildfire, record flooding, climate change, costly and time-consuming permitting of water projects, federal intervention, and downstream state demands on our water, to name but a few.  Colorado's Water Plan has answers, learn more here.

  • Solutions to Meet Our Water Challenges Head-on

    Now more than ever, we are positioned to meet our water challenges head-on with Colorado solutions that include: grassroots plans to meet our gaps between supply and demand; more options for agricultural water users and thirsty municipalities; understanding and quantifying our environmental water needs; thoroughly understanding the benefits and tradeoffs of conservation; actions to protect our watersheds and ready responses to disasters; contingency planning to confront reduced water supplies; a pathway to state endorsement of water projects; and diligence in safeguarding our compact apportionments and our primacy over water; to name but a few.
