The Colorado Water Conservation Board is authorized to administer a pilot program to test the efficacy of fallowing-leasing as an alternative to permanent agricultural dryup. The pilot program may consist of the selection of up to ten separate pilot projects, each lasting up to ten years in duration, to test the practice of fallowing irrigated agricultural land and leasing the associated water rights for temporary agricultural, environmental, industrial, municipal, and recreational uses.
NOTE: This program is not currently activated by the State Legislature, to discuss Collaborative Water Sharing Agreements contact firstname.lastname@example.org
