Grand Valley Conserved Consumptive Use Project

The Hutchins Water Center, in coordination with the Grand Valley Water Users and Water Bank Work Group, convened a meeting October 13, 2016 to discuss the Conserved Consumptive Use Pilot Project in the Grand Valley. The project was initiated as part of the Colorado Water Bank Work Group's investigation of the feasibility of various approaches to water banking.

Since that 2016 meeting, the Conserved Consumptive Use Pilot Project was implemented for another year in 2017, and a plan was developed for a 2018 program.
