Basin Implementation Plans

The Colorado Water Plan is a grassroots effort.

CWCB is excited to announce the completion of the Basin Implementation Plans (BIPs) as of January 31, 2022.

The final edits to the eight Basin Implementation Plans have been completed by the roundtables, their local experts, and the BIP general contractor. The new BIPs advance the basin roundtables' 2015 efforts. For the first time, a shorter and standardized Volume 1 BIP strategy document makes comparing BIPs easier. Additionally, basin efforts to identify local projects are now captured in the CWCB's new Project Database which will come online later this year.

The final Volume 1 BIP links for each basin are below. For those who wish to dive deeper, feel free to reference the longer and more detailed final Volume 2 documents.
