Analysis and Technical Update
In 2016, the CWCB launched an update and upgrade of the state’s supply and demand projection data and tools underpinning Colorado’s Water Plan. The process has come to be known as the Analysis and Technical Update to Colorado’s Water Plan (or simply, Technical Update, formerly "SWSI"). This statewide supply study serves two primary purposes to: (1) provide a consistent statewide framework for examining future water supply and demand under different scenarios and (2) provide tools and data for Basin Roundtables to update their Basin Implementation Plans and develop detailed local solutions to supply and demand gaps.
The July 2019 CWCB Board and IBCC joint meeting marked the preliminary release of the Techincal Update. The meeting was recorded and remains available for viewing on the CWCB YouTube channel. Over the next few months, CWCB will refine this document with Board review - a global announcement will be sent to the CWCB listserv when the final document is re-released.
