The Colorado Water Plan is a grassroots effort.
The Basin Roundtables play a critical role in the development of the Colorado Water Plan. Each Roundtable delivered its own Basin Implementation Plan to the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) in April 2015. These plans framed regional values and offered strategies for how each basin's future water needs will be addressed at the local level. As a result, much of the Water Plan's success has been basin-specific – where local governments, water utilities, elected officials, community organizations, and citizens are involved on-the-ground with locally-tailored efforts.
