Denver can take a little more water from the Colorado River’s headwaters to increase the reliability of its system, but won’t develop any new transmountain diversions without West Slope agreement and will help repair damage from past diversions.
The members of the Colorado River Basin Roundtable last week unanimously agreed to tell a group of Front Range water interests not to look for new sources of water on the Western Slope to meet a forecasted water shortage.

It's been over a month since rain-swollen creeks tore through roads and flooded homes in Colorado's Front Range. While the camera crews have long since gone home, the disaster isn't over for families who suffered property damage. Of the 20,000 single-family homes in the Boulder area, only 3,504 had flood insurance in one of the highest ratios in Colorado.
Colorado can get some of the best of two water worlds, the head of the state agency in charge of water said Thursday. A state water plan can protect private property rights and make it possible for state action, said James Eklund, director of the Colorado Water Conservation Board, at th
Harvests are late and water systems are damaged as farmers around Colorado struggle after September's flooding. "Some of the frustration now is, in the wake of this disaster, there's not as much attention being given to the crisis that the agriculture sector is facing," said Adrian Card with the Colorado State University Extension.
Since the early 90s, the rate of population growth in Colorado has exceeded the national average, and since the year 2000, nearly one million people have migrated to the Centennial State.
Some of the flooding that ravaged Colorado earlier this month was "unprecedented," according to a preliminary assessment issued by government and university scientists Wednesday. The report was prepared by the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) in Boulder, Colo.
The recent massive flooding in northeastern Colorado was a tragedy in lost lives, destroyed homes and lost agricultural crops.
For the past few years the state has been in a drought and the last two summers it has experienced devastating wild land fires and record breaking temperatures. But that drought came to an end in a matter of days for parts of Colorado as rain pummeled the Front Range causing devastating flash flooding in 17 counties.
Even as flooding recedes, Colorado is reeling. Communities up and down the state's Front Range remain isolated by washed-out roads, stranded by rushing creeks and without water and power. By Tuesday morning more than 3,000 people had been rescued in Boulder and Larimer counties, the areas hit the hardest by the flooding, officials said.
