Our Water

Advocating for solutions to secure a sustainable water future.

In the West, water is the lifeblood of our communities, economy, and identity. Water must be balanced between our agricultural economy, our growing cities, and our natural environment. Our rivers and streams sustain diverse ecosystems and river recreation activities, which draw visitors to our state. We are at a critical tipping point where our water supply is compromised by competing demands, a changing climate, population growth, and outdated management plans. Unless we learn to better manage and conserve our resources, we’ll be facing a dire water crisis.

Rafters, Water, RiverHealthy, flowing rivers do much more than just provide a home for fish. Aside from supporting entire ecosystems, water is vital for our economy. From rafting and fishing to agriculture and industry, Coloradans rely on our watersheds.

We strive to incorporate the needs of diverse communities as we find solutions to ensure our state has enough water for future generations.
