Colorado is currently investigating the feasibility of a potential Demand Management program for the state. Demand Management is the concept of temporary, voluntary, and compensated reductions in the consumptive use of water in the Colorado River Basin. Each of the Upper Colorado River Basin States are conducting their own investigations to determine whether a potential program would be feasible in their states as well.
This process follows the direction from the Board in the Support and Policy Statements adopted in November 2018, which led to the 2019 Work Plan, and then the most recent Step II Work Plan approved in November 2020.
