Water Plan Values

The goals within Colorado’s Water Plan are numerous and include meeting the water supply and demand gaps, defending Colorado’s compact entitlements, improving regulatory processes and explore financial incentives—all while honoring Colorado’s water values and ensuring that the state’s most valuable resource is protected and available for generations to come.

Three core water values shape every measurable objective, goal, and action in the plan:

  1. A productive economy that supports vibrant and sustainable cities; viable and
    productive agriculture; a robust recreation and tourism economy, including skiing;

  2. Efficient and effective water infrastructure;

  3. A strong environment that includes healthy watersheds, rivers, streams, and wildlife.

I think it's about time to charge users - all users - more for water. People will grumble and complain, but reality is what it is. I see more homeowners putting in xeriscape yards and gardens, but not enough. New construction in housing - single & multi use should be mandated or strongly encouraged use hardscape and drought tolerate plants and the most efficient sprinkling systems. I don't know how the front range can accommodate another 100, 000 residents in the next decade without major changes in how we use land & water.
