Colorado's Water Plan
People love Colorado. Our iconic mountains, rivers, minerals, plains, communities, forests, snow, wildlife, and wilderness have drawn people by the millions to our centennial state. Our population has ballooned from 1 million in 1930 to over 5 million today, and could nearly double by 2060. Sustaining this growth requires water. With this projected pace of growth, how do we preserve what we love about our state? Colorado’s Water Plan has answers.
