North Platte Basin

 

ABOUT THE NORTH PLATTE BASIN ROUNDTABLE

The North Platte Basin is located in north central Colorado in Jackson County and a small portion of Larimer County. The basin covers an area of roughly 2,050 square miles and has a population of 1,491. The largest town in the basin is Walden with a population of 727 people.

The North Platte is Colorado’s only basin with concern over lack of growth and economic development. The North Platte Basin is projected to increase in municipal and industrial (M&I) water demand between 200 acre feet (AF) and 300 AF by 2050 with passive conservation included.
