Collaborating on Colorado’s Water Plan
Forward by the chair of the Colorado Basin Roundtable
The priorities and challenges from the headwater counties of Grand, Eagle, Summit and Pitkin, to the Colorado-Utah State line, are diverse. The water demands to support the tourism, recreation, municipal, industrial and agricultural demands carry a different emphasis in each of these areas. The Basin was divided into seven regions to allow more focus on regional needs, vulnerabilities, methods and projects.
Seven Basin Regions
The regional boundaries were delineated based on the State Engineer Office’s (SEO) water district boundaries. Several regions mimic the exact SEO district boundaries while some were a combination of several districts and in one instance; the Middle Colorado Region, was enlarged to include the Shoshone Hydroelectric Plant.
