Water Conservation

The Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB), part of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, provides a comprehensive water information resource. CWCB represents each major water basin, Denver and other state agencies in our joint effort to use water wisely and protect water for future generations. Their website provides information on Colorado’s Water Plan, Best Practices for Water Conservation Through Land Use Planning (PDF), and additional information on drought planning, climate change, and more.

For those serviced by Denver Water, water use and supply data, and environmental planning information are available online.

The CSU Colorado Water Knowledge website provides analysis on the state's water consumption across industries, offers tips on water efficiency, and provides additional resources.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s WaterSense program provides tips in how to conserve water at home (including your outdoors), a list of water-efficient products, and advice on saving energy in your home.

Additional resources can be found from Colorado WaterWise, which provides resources on water supply, rates, conservation, and watering information, as well as CSU Extension's Small Acreage Management program, which maintains a list of the latest guidelines on irrigation, rainwater collection, and water conservation for properties in Colorado.
