Part of: Water Resources Infrastructure: Needs, Economics, and Financing


The Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District (District) is conducting a study to determine the feasibility of implementing expanded regional cooperation for future municipal and industrial water supplies in northeastern Colorado. Competition for water supplies in this part of Colorado is increasing as a result of continuing growth. Significant activity in water rights sales and changes in use is expected. To manage these changes such that adequate water supplies remain within the District's service area and the waters available are used in the most efficient manner possible, the District is exploring options for construction and operation of regional conveyance and water treatment facilities and the regionalization of future supplies. These are discussed in the paper.
