Addressing the state's water challenge by improving water efficiency through diverse community connections, innovative solutions, and valuable member resources
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.
