Directed by the Colorado state legislature, the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) developed the Water Plan to determine state policy regarding the optimal conservation and development of Colorado’s water resources. The Water Plan's development and implementation has been led by the CWCB, through a multi-year, iterative process that prioritizes stakeholder engagement. The plan analyzes the potential for both conservation and development alongside constantly changing factors that drives water needs. The Water Plan evaluates current and future risks that we can model within Colorado to help make decisions.
