Everything you love about Colorado is connected back to water: kayaking, fishing, peaches, beer, the thriving economy. But the fact is, we’re using more water than the Colorado River supplies. Our population is booming. And snowpack, which feeds our rivers, has been below average all across Colorado most years since 2000. This year’s snowpack has been great, but it’s just a drop in the bucket compared to how much we’ll need. So in order to keep this amazing state a great place to live, work, and do business we need to support Colorado’s Water Plan.
Colorado’s Water Plan is a comprehensive approach to solving our water gap. The plan was developed with the input of 30,000 farmers, scientists, and citizens from every corner of the state.

As groups across the state work on solving these thorny issues there are many resources out there. We encourage you to visit these sites for more in-depth analysis of the state's water issues.
