Colorado River Water Conservancy District Updated:09/2023


The Colorado River District’s mission is to lead in the protection, conservation, use, and development of the water resources of the Colorado River water basin for the welfare of the District, and to safeguard for Colorado all waters of the Colorado River to which the state is entitled.


The Colorado River District is local government. We exist to serve you – water users across the 15 West Slope Colorado counties that from the headwaters of the Yampa, White, Gunnison, and Colorado Rivers. We do this through legal and legislative advocacy, technical and engineering support, community outreach and education, and multi-benefit water project grant funding.

In addition to protecting West Slope water interests within our borders, the Colorado River District also supports the State of Colorado to ensure our water interests within the greater Colorado River Basin are protected when federal and interstate negotiations around Colorado River Basin water and water management occur.
