“Denver Water proudly serves high-quality water and promotes its efficient use to 1.5 million people in the city of Denver and many surrounding suburbs.

We exist to serve you – water users across the 15 West Slope Colorado counties that from the headwaters of the Yampa, White, Gunnison, and Colorado Rivers. We do this through legal and legislative advocacy, technical and engineering support, community outreach and education, and multi-benefit water project grant funding.”

“The Dolores Project, located in the Dolores and San Juan River Basins in southwestern Colorado, develops water from the Dolores River for irrigation, municipal and industrial users, recreation, fish and wildlife, and hydroelectric power. It also provides vital water to the Dove Creek area, central Montezuma Valley area, and to the Towaoc area on the Ute Mountain Ute Indian Reservation.”

“Created by the Colorado General Assembly to protect, conserve, use and develop the water resources of the San Juan and Dolores River Basins for the welfare of all the inhabitants, and safeguard for Colorado all waters to which the state is entitled.”

“The Tri-County Water Conservancy District was formed in August 1957. The District’s mission is to provide dependable quality service for delivery of water to District customers and to manage, operate and maintain the Ridgway Dam in the most efficient and economical manner.”

“The Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District (UGRWCD) was established in 1959 by a vote of area taxpayers.  The UGRWCD’s mission has evolved over the years to “being an active leader in all issues affecting the water resources of the Upper Gunnison River Basin.”  The UGRWCD is located in south-central Colorado in the headwaters of the Gunnison River Basin. The mainstem of the Upper Gunnison River forms at the confluence of the East and Taylor Rivers in Almont and converges with other tributaries on its way into Blue Mesa Reservoir.”

“The Western Colorado Area Office consists of two offices, located in Grand Junction and Durango, and several field offices with projects encompassing western Colorado, northwestern New Mexico, and northeastern Arizona. The office is responsible for Reclamation projects and program activities in the Upper Colorado, Gunnison, Yampa, White, Dolores, Uncompahgre, Animas, and San Juan river basins and works with the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, Southern Ute Indian Tribe, Jicarilla Apache Nation, and Navajo Nation, as well as numerous water user organizations.”

“The Lower Colorado (LC) Region is one of five Bureau of Reclamation Regions in 17 western states working to implement Reclamation’s mission to manage, develop, and protect water and related resources in an environmentally and economically sound manner in the interest of the American public. The LC Region encompasses southern Nevada, southern California, most of Arizona, a small corner of southwest Utah and a small section of west-central New Mexico. Reclamation has been involved in water management programs in some of these states since the early 1900s.”

“The Eastern Colorado Area Office manages two large projects that benefit Coloradoans across the state: The Colorado-Big Thompson (C-BT); The Fryingpan-Arkansas (Fry-Ark). It also manages the Leadville Mine Drainage Tunnel and Treatment Plant, which removes heavy metals resulting from historic mining activity before the water enters the Arkansas River.”
