Why Integrate Land Use and Water Resource Planning?

The Growing Water Smart program helps communities bridge the gap
between water management and land use planning to build a more resilient
future. This is especially important for Colorado as its population continues to
rapidly grow. From 1 million people in 1930 to over 5 million today, projections
now anticipate that Colorado’s population could nearly double by 2060. To
sustain this growth, Colorado will need to better manage its water supply.
Although Colorado is a headwater state, the state’s water supply faces
increasing uncertainty with over-appropriated river basins, longer droughts,
and more frequent fires. The Colorado Water Plan predicts that by 2050 the
state could have a supply gap of up to 560,000 acre-feet.

Application Deadline: June 28, 2019
