Colorado Water Conservation Board
The importance of green lawns to maintain quality of life and urban home values was heard alongside that of maintaining river flows for the Western Slope’s recreation-based economy in comments to the Colorado Water Conservation Board Thursday.
The Colorado State Water Plan isn’t final yet, but it’s kicking up a lot of resistance here on the Western Slope. And for good reason. The plan, still in its draft stage, could spell trouble for the vibrant recreation economy of many Western Slope communities. Much of the plan continues to rely on outdated and, frankly, extravagant uses of water in our arid state.
The San Juan Water Conservancy District (SJWCD) held a special meeting on Sept. 8 for the consideration and discussion of a Letter of Intent to structure future discussions with Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District (PAWSD) and the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) regarding the proposed Dry Gulch Reservoir.
A group of legislators from around the state were in Durango on Aug.
Western Slope water storage is “absolutely” a part of the Colorado water plan that is to be complete in just over a year, said the head of the Colorado Water Conservation Board. James Eklund, however, declined to offer specifics about any discussions. U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Colo., this week told the editorial board of The Daily Sentinel that he and Gov.
The Arkansas Basin Roundtable is trying to develop a model that shows how changes in water use in one area affect flows elsewhere.
By the middle of this century, Denver’s average temperature could be 6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than today — on par with Albuquerque, according to a new climate report released by the Colorado Water Conservation Board in early August. Even with deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, Colorado will continue to get warmer.
It’s been over a year since Governor Hickenlooper issued an executive order calling for the creation of a state water plan. It won’t be a legal document, but the plan is expected to make recommendations that will guide future water planning and funding decisions. The process is well underway, with a deadline to deliver a draft plan by this December.
Colorado's climate has warmed by about 2 degrees over the past 30 years and should see an increase of at least that much by 2050 with widespread implications for water supply, according to a comprehensive newreport released today.
In May of last year, Governor John Hickenlooper issued an executive order to create the Colorado Water Plan. As a part of the process established by the governor’s order, nine regional roundtables were empowered to create water plans for the river basins in their particular areas. These regional plans are referred to as Basin Implementation Plans or BIPs.
