Across Colorado, our Growing Water Smart program is helping rural and urbanizing communities integrate water and land use planning to better ensure the sustainability and resilience of their region. Our Growing Water Smart Workshop brings local leaders together to craft action plans. Follow-up Technical Assistance helps implement them. Explore our resources and join the network of Growing Water Smart professionals scaling solutions to Colorado’s water challenges.
The Growing Water Smart Workshop has trained and helped leaders from communities serving 55% of Colorado’s residents craft action plans to integrate water and land use planning.
Their actions will help attain the goals of Colorado’s Water Plan to close an annual supply gap of between 250,000 and 750,000 acre feet/year and have 75% of Colorado residents living in communities that have incorporated water saving actions into land use planning. Many communities use our Follow up Technical Assistance to help implement their action plans.
