Water for Colorado

From urban residents to business owners to farmers, we all have a role to play in using our water resources more efficiently. When it comes to water, we all need to live within our means. Greater cooperation, innovative technologies and best practices will enable Colorado to build prosperous communities, support thriving agricultural and tourism industries, and keep our rivers healthy and flowing.

Gov. John Hickenlooper called for the creation of Colorado’s Water Plan in an executive order and the Colorado Water Conservation Board is gathering ideas from across the state. The final plan was delivered to the governor on Nov. 19, 2015. 

Water For Colorado shares insights and expertise from a variety of organizations that research and study water conservation and natural resource issues. Water For Colorado offers a solutions-based approach to Colorado’s water future, and opportunities for the general public to have a voice and take action.
