Colorado Water Plan

The South Platte Basin Implementation Plan Video is sponsored by the Metro and South Platte Basin Roundtables to educate Colorado residents about the South Platte Basin Implementation Plan.

The South Platte Basin Implementation Plan is a joint planning effort between the Metro and the South Platte Roundtables to identify needs, challenges, and possible solutions for water issues facing the South Platte River Basin within Colorado. The plan has been written to contribute local perspectives and knowledge from the Basin to meet projected water supply needs. It is also a contributing document in the development of “Colorado’s Water Plan.”

Colorado’s Water Plan is intended to set a course for water planning on a statewide level, utilizing local knowledge from each river basin. It is the hope of the South Platte and the Metro Basin Roundtables that the South Platte Basin Implementation Plan will serve as a first step towards decisive action to address Colorado’s water needs now and in the future.
