State Water Plan: Make Southwest Colorado’s Voice Heard

In May 2013, Governor Hickenlooper issued an executive order directing the Colorado Water Conservation Board to develop
a plan for Colorado’s water future. Building on eight years of collaboration, the southwest portion of the plan has been the
work of more than thirty regional water leaders, incorporating input from water users all around the basin. Our region’s draft
plan was submitted in July and the statewide draft plan will be submitted to the governor in December.

Now that the plan is in draft form, it’s time to comment. Here in Southwest Colorado, residents are concerned about their water
future. There are several ways you can help make our local voice heard. Come to a public meeting, learn about the plan and
share your input with local Roundtable representatives.
You can download our area’s draft plan and the statewide draft plan
at: http://coloradowaterplan.com/. There is a general comment form on the website as well.

Please take a few moments to become familiar with the state water plan and be a part of the discussion.
