Save Water

Colorado Water Plan

December 12, 2015

Colorado water planners have a plan to save water. The Denver Post shared the details on 11/18/2015:

• A water-saving target of 130 billion gallons a year for cities and industry, left largely on their own to cut water consumption using methods from low-flow appliances to limits on lawn irrigation.

• A goal of increasing reservoir and aquifer storage space for 130 billion gallons and encouraging re-use of wastewater.

• A framework for assessing possible unspecified new trans-mountain diversions of water from the western side of the Continental Divide, when conditions permit, to Front Range cities and suburbs.

• A proposal to develop stream and river protection plans to cover 80 percent of “critical watersheds” by 2030.

• A strategy for slowing the loss of irrigated agricultural land as Front Range utilities buy up water rights — which state officials said threatens 700,000 more acres, or 20 percent of currently irrigated acres statewide. The strategy is to facilitate temporary transfers during wet years with farmers and ranchers retaining water ownership.
